Snowpack Closer To Average

Snowpack

As the season moved into more spring-like patterns, snow accumulations now more-closely resemble seasonal averages.  According to the Natural Resources Conservation Service, accumulations in local river basins are at or nearly equal to the 30-year average.  Currently, the Snake River Basin has 95% of average snow depth and 93% of the water content.  Further north, the Yellowstone river basin and Wind River basin are reporting 101% of normal snow accumulation and 100% of the average water content.  The Upper Green River Basin above Pinedale is now at 98% of normal snow depth containing 94% of the average water content.  The state average is now 99% of normal compared with last year’s average at this same time of 115%.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
