      Greetings Hardrockers,

      Below is the snow report as of the last day of April, 08 for
      Silverton. As you can see, snowfall let up in April. The spring
      melt is not yet in force but all the models indicate a warm spring
      with below average precipitation from now until Hardrock. You can
      see a graph of the Mineral Creek snowload at:

      The Durango Herald maintains a snow report averaging the San Juan
      Basin at: http://durangoherald.com/index_weather.asp

      I'm looking forward to getting up to the high country.
