Colorado Ski Resorts Powder Level Cameras

image of Colorado Ski Resorts Powder Level Cameras-Telluride Snow LevelAfter a snow storm it’s always good to find out ‘how much they received’. Here are Colorado Ski Resorts Powder Level Cameras which are periodically updated to see how much has accumulation. Many are date stamped and are cleared at various times of the day. Some do it at 4pm, others at 4:30 and so on. The accumulation is since their last clear off. Telluride has a conveyor belt on a timer which is pretty trick. By checking during a storm you can get a sense of the rate of the snowfall.

Please let us know if you find that any of these do not load or know of other camera URLs. If a snow stake cam is not available, we’ve included snow report links. Some images may not load even after this page is refreshed. You may need to ‘view image’ by right clicking or selecting control/view image, or click on the source link above. Some images have time stamps and other hints there is something inconsistent if the image shows sun at night or dark during the day.

SlideWright Supports CAIC to Help Colorado Avalanche Forecasting

caic-2013CAIC, the Colorado Avalanche Information Center is funded by donations and is an important avalanche forecasting resource for backcountry skiers and snowboarders, along with other snow season backcountry users.

The purpose of the CAIC is to minimize the
economic and human impact of snow avalanches on recreation, tourism, commerce, industry and the citizens of Colorado. Since 1950 avalanches have killed more people in Colorado than any other natural hazard, and in the United States, Colorado accounts for one-third of all avalanche death.

Every year there is a Friends of CAIC benefit bash where
participants can support the CAIC by purchasing tickets, beers and place bids on auction items provided from many outdoor gear companies. SlideWright Ski & Snowboard Tools & Wares  is one company that believes in supporting the organization that all rely on to provide the best available weather and avalanche risk information for Colorado’s backcountry.

So step up and support the CAIC! Bid often on these items from SlideWright and others to help raise the funds needed for this important organization!

The Friends of CAIC are proud to announce the

8th Annual CAIC Benefit Bash

November 14, 2015
5 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Breckenridge Riverwalk Center
Tickets: http://www.breckcreate.org/event/caicbenefitbash/
Discount hotel rooms can be found at Beaver Run Resort
Please call 1-800-525-2253 and reference the CAIC Benefit Bash

Snow and Water Levels-Snotel Locates the Goods

Snotel snow and water sensor maps for the western USAll outdoor enthusiasts are (or should be) interested in weather related information. Snotel weather sensor sites monitored by the National Water and Climate Center (United States Department of Agriculture, Nature Resources Conservation Service) provide an array of historical and current data for hundreds of sites in the western United States and Alaska.

 

 

Not only can you get a sense of the current temperatures in your favorite outdoor areas, but you can figure out where the powder is and compare this data to what ski areas and local water reports are claiming.

By clicking on the state of interest in the map or the pulldown menu, you will see all of the sites in that western state:

You can then select sensor locations surrounding your area of interest to see what the averages are for a particular area. As we understand it, the sensors are located in a particular drainage so the NWCC can obtain data that represents the whole area, NOT maximum snow or snow water equivalents. Ski areas generally tend to ‘highlight’ the maximum powder for obvious reasons. By checking out multiple sites surrounding an area, coupled with personal experience in the area on interest, you can get a fairly good idea of where you’d like to go to either take advantage of the snow depth or avoid it, depending on whether or not you are skiing/boarding, biking, backpacking, hiking, or planning for kayaking/rafting/fishing trips and water flows.

In this example we select Red Mountain Pass (site# 713) in the San Juans, not too far from Silverton Mountain, Telluride and Purgatory. It is also the headwaters for the Animas and Uncompahgre Rivers. Here is the sensor data page for Red Mountain Pass:

 

By selecting the ‘Daily/Last 7 Days’ in the ‘Snow Depth’ field you can get a quick glimpse of the past week and current condiitions:

You can see the change in the snow depth over each 24 hour period.

For more detail, by selecting ‘Hourly/Last 7 Days’, you’ll see exactly that, hourly data so you can watch a storm or melt rate as it develops (note this image is split to reduce size):

 

 

You can see that prior to the storm that started a 6pm last night, the snow actually melted down to 27″ and then snowed 5″, and settled 1″. Our experience has been that when ‘-99.9’ is shown, it typically is precipitating. This is a good thing/bad thing. When it’s snowing (good thing), you do not know the rate (bad thing) until there is a break in the snow or rain fall. The duration, coupled with past experience and viewing past history, can give you an idea of what is really happening. It is not unusual to see 6 to 12″ in the data and find 12 to 16″ in sheltered areas on Red Mountain pass. Combining this data with Avalanche Forecasting can give you a broader picture of the conditions.

Note you can also view Snotel data using Google Maps as one of the choices on the site.
