Snowfall Not Keeping Pace

Snowpack

Snowfall in Northwestern Wyoming is apparently not keeping pace with annual trends as the average amount has been declining from the 30-year norm.  According to the Natural Resources Conservation Service, precipitation in the Snake River Basin is now only 98% of normal, it is 102% of normal in the Yellowstone Basin and 85% of normal in the Wind River Basin.  Water content is slightly higher in each basin.  That raises concerns for the state’s forestry leaders who fear another dry fire year may be ahead.  Still, snow accumulation at the area’s ski resorts is well above the average having been received by most other ski areas around the Rocky Mountain Region.
