This site is about unofficial snowfall and snowbase readings.
No experts, no special places for measurements, no scientific technical equipment.
Measurements are made by on-snow staff telling it as they see it.
Measurements may and probably will include man made snow, windblown snow and/or
may be subject to wind erosion, rain fall, avalanches, slips and slides, global
warming, climate change, wombats and other natural and unnatural sources and
causes. But, hey, it doesn't matter. You ski and board on what is on the ground
so we report what is on the ground.
Please note that this web site is still very new and a little patience, understanding, feedback and support will go a long way ;-)
RecentSnow.com - Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide skiers, boarders, snow shoers, hikers and more with
comparative information about recent snow falls and base depths at varying altitudes
and locations. This is not intended as a scientific study but a means to show
relative changes in the alpine snow cover.
