Snow Accumulations Increase

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.
