Now what may be interesting is Mt. Hood may not have any snow this Summer.
As of March 1st, TIMBERLINE had a current depth of 146", the average for this time of year is 142", so we are at 103% of normal.
When they do the next measurement on Sunday, it will be higher then the 103% it was on the First. I'm guessing 120% of normal. Lots more snow in the forecast for Spring. So plenty of snow for the summer. Come on out, July is going to be great.
Local mountain has to be closed April 13th no matter how much snow there is, because of a law protecting the endangered marmots in the area. Last year we still had a 300+ cm base when the mountain closed =(.
But I'm in the process of planning a trip up to whistler for the end of April just before i head off to africa for a month
That's ridiculous! what a waste our season ends soooon for lack of snow ='(
