ACCUMULATION:
If you are looking for snow accumulation trends from year to year. This graphical data is plotted once a week and provides current, historical, and average data so that you can quickly compare this week’s snow pack to the same time in previous  years. By using this web address you can determine current conditions and conditions on the hour for the past 7 days. With this information you can increase your knowledge of snow conditions. It has the potential of telling you if a thawing front has moved in at elevation during the week or it can help determine avalanche stability trends and snow settling trends by looking at the temperature variation in the past few days and the relationship between the height of new snow vs. total cumulative precipitation (settling of the snow pack over time).
