      Hardrockers,

      Below is the updated Silverton UNOFFICIAL snow report as of the end of
      April. Snowfall still shows as slightly below the average for
      Hardrock years although I think part of that is poor data quality.
      When I look at the SNOTEL station data around Silverton, the snow pack
      is falling like a rock off the Bear Creek Trail (take your pick of
      Bear Creeks). The climate models predict much above average
      temperatures with about average precipitation from now until Hardrock.

      You can see a Mineral Creek SNOTEL station graphic at:
