Snowpack Observations


Clear skies in the morning gradually became partly cloudy as the day progressed, with temperature in the upper 20°s F (-3°C). A growing lenticular was observed at high elevations on Mt Shasta. Snow conditions near and below treeline were rough as the last of the snow from early November holds on. The snowpack is patchy below 7,200' with a consistent, shallow, 25cm snowpack NTL and BTL above 7,200'. A widespread 2cm melt-freeze crust was observed throughout these zones. No good snow was found and the incoming forecasted moisture over the next few days will provide a much-needed refresh for the thin snowpack.
