      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
              temperatures, snowpack, and precip. It's at:

                  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.
