Cascades snow depth running 109% to 167% of normal

Skiers and snowboarders arrived Monday to fresh snow at Snoqualmie Summit.

“During different times this season it has been the number one snow pack in the county – currently it’s over 600 inches (50 feet)at the top of Alpental,” said Guy Lawrence, general manager at Summit at Snoqualmie. Fifty feet! That’s the height of a 5-story building!

And that will continue growing, because more spring snow is expected.

“Next week we’re probably going to get a couple of systems that will bring snow to the higher elevations in the Cascades,” said Nick Bond, a professor at the University of Washington and a state climatologist.

The snowpack in the Cascades is enormous. On the west side of the Cascades, the water content in the snow is running from 128-169% above the median amount as of Thursday, forecasters said. Snow depth amounts were 109 to 167% of normal. Snoqualmie Pass is about 4 feet above normal while it’s over 5 feet above normal at Mt. Rainier’s Paradise Ranger Station.

“Over fifty feet of snow right now an hour east of Seattle where they just banned NG in new construction because global warming,” says Oly.

    • “NG” = Evil Natural Gas. You know, one of the cleanest-burning hydrocarbons there is. Can’t have that nasty stuff warming your cockles, ya know!

      No NG in new construction. Yes, they are that Stooopid!

  1. The Witch Doktor Diviners world-wide are never elected yet they are the “hidden” ultimate diviners [Big Pharma VooDoo Witches] of unelected NGO power.

    … as a test devised by Shaka to expose the [witch doctor] diviners as frauds.

  2. More snow, less snow. More forest fires, fewer forest fires. More flooding, less flooding. More drought, less drought … It makes no difference. It’s all reported as the result of manmade climate change.
    So there are no climatic conditions which can refute the GW hypothesis. It’s always our fault; the fault of human-produced CO2.
    Everyone knows that, by definition, true science is always falsifiable. Every hypothesis is always up for grabs. As Richard Feynman said: “It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong.”
    But, if there are no experimental results (in this case weather events over decades and centuries) which are accepted as refuting your hypothesis, then your hypothesis isn’t falsifiable.
    Ergo, your hypothesis isn’t science.
    So what is it?
    It’s a cult or an orchestrated ‘fool-the-useful-idiots’ political deception. And unfortunately it’s working.

  3. 50′ of snow an hour east of Microsoft HQ, get off our backs Bill Gates. Six years ago there was no snow here in the mountains, no ski areas opened. Solar max. ’09 it snowed in Seattle till May, there was no corn crop, Solar min, La Nina. It’s a cycle. reporting : -50 Greenland, -25 Siberia, -91 Antarctica. Brrr.
