      Here is my opinion on the snowpack: At this time, it is pretty much normal or slightly below. The snowpack will dwindle pretty much as usual, unless

        The snowpack will dwindle pretty much as usual,
        unless there are some new major storms. <br><br>Whatever
        the JMT veterans would say about "normal year
        conditions" should apply this year. Last year was
        exceptionally dry in the high country. This year will certainly
        have more snowpack, but nothing like 1983 or 1997.
        <br><br>But hey, it might snow some more! Winter ain't over
        yet, but the probabilities are dwindling.<br><br>Here
        is my tip on interpreting the snow water equivalents
        shown for individual sensor sites: <br><br>loose, new
        fallen snow is deeper, say up to 12 inches of snow to 1
        inch of precip<br><br>dense, old snow is less deep,
        say from 3 to 6 inches of snow to 1 inch of precip.
        This is applicable when daytime air temps have been
        above freezing for a while<br><br>Have a great time,
        whatever you decide to do!<br><br>Best Regards,<br><br>FRF
