Snow Accumulations Increase

December 12, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming No Comments
Snowpack

Repeated waves of snow showers have been very beneficial to northwestern Wyoming which, until last week, was relatively snow-parched.  According to the Natural Resource Conservation Service, snotel sites in area basins posted appreciably above average amounts.  The precipitation average in the Snake River Basin is currently at 114% of normal snow accumulation with a water equivalency of 124%.  The Yellowstone basin which includes Two Ocean Plateau is at 112% of normal precip with 114% of water content.  Statewide, however, the median accumulation is still below last year’s level at this time. Still, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort reports having received 138 inches of snow at the summit so far this season while Grand Targhee boasts 137 inches at its summit.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
