Default Deepest Snowpacks Right Now...

Not sure how reliable this is, but I found it very interesting that only Alaska has more snow than the state of Washington right now.

Even little old Alpental and Snoqualmie (not sure Snoqualmie should be included) in my own backyard are #4 on the list behind Alaska and Mt. Baker (Baker always has tons of snow).

I thought our season here in the Seattle area was starting slow, but I guess we're pretty lucky

The question I'm asking myself is which will be deeper in CO this year, the snowpack or the ash from the fire from hell that's gonna result from this dry ass winter when all this beetle kill goes up in flames?

Didn't even notice that.

What is funny is that they include Alpental and Snoqualmie seperate, with the same snowpack. However, Alpental has much more snow then the rest of the Snoqualmie base areas. It's like they though Alpental and Summit at Snoqualmie were different resorts, but then they used the snowpack for Alpental for both

Wasn't optimal choice. Got discounted Tix to PC and canyons. Made the best of it though.

Spring boarding? Spring riding is where it's at! This shit feels like September.
