Snowpack at 255%

Sitting with a 95" Base we have had almost a foot of snow over the last 48 hours. I just looked at Grizzly Snotel site online. It has a snowpack that is 255% of normal for May 20.

Our YTD snowfall is 438". Our records go back to 1978. The best snowfall season was 1979-80 with 550". That is also the only year over 500". This season's 438" compared to the total snowfall for all the previous years puts this year in the Number 7 position. Considering that it continues to snow, we could very well end up with a "Top 5" season.
