        Greetings from snowy Los Alamos,

        Below is the snow accumulation for Silverton up through the end of
        January. Silverton received about 30 inches of snow during the first
        week of the year but not much after that. Los Alamos got about a
        foot of snow last night but I don't think there was much snow in the
        San Juans from this storm. The San Juan Mountains currently have
        about 94% of normal snowfall for this time of year.

          Hello All,

          Below is the Silverton snow report as of May first. April was fairly
          wet in the San Juans with about 30 inches of snow at Silverton. From
          various San Juan Mountain SNOTEL sites, the snow water content is
          very close to normal for this time of year.

          I was in Silverton over the May 8-9 weekend and there was a lot of
          snow in the north facing tree slopes and above treeline. Many
          avalanches had recently run on the higher slopes. There was even
          snow in town, especially on the north sides of houses, from the heavy
          snowfall on about April 30th. The Coal Bank Hill (10,600+') snow
          gauge showed 1.5 feet of snow and water was running off the hills all
          around. The Mineral Creek crossing was not particularly high but, it
          was very COLD. However, the Uncompaghre River was dirty and really
          roiling.

          I'm looking forward to July.

              Hello Hardrockers,

              The Silverton newspaper reported one of the highest January snowfalls
              on record. As you can see below, there was a lot of snow. The San
              Juan Mountains have well above the normal snowpack. There's a lot of
              snow up there. I can't wait to see how much remains for the run but,
              I'm already thinking about going up Virginius this year.

                Below is the Silverton snow report as of April 1st. The snowpack
                across the San Juans is roughly 1.3 times normal. However, snowpack
                has begun to decrease in the last week. Long range forecasts
                indicate about normal temperatures and precipitation for the next
                three months.

                SNOTEL is a great web site that provides real time measures of

                    Hello everyone,

                    Below is the first Hardrock snow report for this season. It's as
                    plain as the nose on your snowman that there just isn't much snow so
                    far in Silverton. We'll have to wait to see what the rest of the
                    winter brings.

                    I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year.
