Snowpack news: The Roaring Fork River watershed above Aspen is off to a better start than last season


From The Aspen Times (Janet Urqurhart):

The dearth of snow in town in November was not, however, reflected on the ski slopes. The upper slopes of Snowmass collected 41 inches of snow in November — more than the 36 inches that fell at the ski area during the same month a year ago. Still, most of this year’s snow came early in the month, with two storms during the first week of November. The water plant recorded 8 inches of new snow on the morning of Nov. 2 and measured another 6 inches on Nov. 6. Other forecast storms were a bust, but the plant recorded 2.1 inches of snow on Nov. 14 and lesser amounts on other days.
