the pacific NW looks like it should get some more snow in the next few weeks. But southern alaska has been getting pounded all year. go to anchorage and hit up arctic valley and alyeska.

Why does tanner hall need to know where the snow is? By the mere fact of asking this question in this forum; you must not be the real tanner hall :eek:

I got skunked at wolf creek already once this season. It's even hit or miss down there with the high temps we've been having

I guess like anywhere, you gotta time it right. I also forgot Powder King, they've had it really good too. Since La Nina usually means a more northerly jet stream / storm track (ie: BC) everything seems about normal right now.
-- Edit --
Check out the BC pillow data to get an idea of snow depths across the province: http://bcrfc.env.gov.bc.ca/data/asp/realtime/index.htm
Here's the stations nearest the powder hills...
Pine Pass = Powder King
Morrissey Ridge = Fernie
Redfish Creek = Whitewater
Mount Revelstoke = Revelstoke
Squamish River = Whistler
Wolf River = Mt. Washington
Tsai Creek = Shames (800mm SWE!!)

I'm not in BC right now (out east in Quebec for this winter) but I always refer to the reports from the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides for first hand, trustworthy, field trip reports: Mountain Conditions Reports
You can also check the Avy Bulletins, which contain some snowpack data too: Parks Canada - Public Avalanche Information
