Pacific Northwest Trail Snow Conditions - Feb 19, 2019

Get the App!

Below you will find detailed and current snow conditions for the entire Pacific Northwest Trail. Types of information include current/average snow amount for date, current snow coverage, minimum/average/maximum amount for April 1st and an elevation profile so you can contrast snow conditions with elevation. Snow condtions are presented in graph and tabular format.

Snow pack vs trail snow. Snow pack aggregates values from relative few physical sensors/hand measurements located over an entire mountain range, then displays that daily aggregate over time. This is not ideal for hikers as hikers are concerned with a very specific area (the trail). Trail snow takes a single modeled value at thousands of specific locations along the trail on the current date. This is ideal for hikers as they can see snow conditions on or near the trail uninfluenced by conditions miles away at wildly different elevations. This stark example shows snow pack vs trail snow at the most critical time of the year.

2/19/2019 - JMT, Crabtree to Tuolumne - 181.8 miles - Well above average, %187
Covered by snow: 100.0%, No snow: 0.0%, Above average: 99.5%, Below average: 0.0%, About average: 0.5%,

Data originates from SNODAS modeled data and NOHRSC/NSIDC.
