After 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.
CAIC, 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.
All 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.
