Snow survey brings positive news for region

1 min read

The region’s snowpack is “way above normal” according to Jeff Anderson, hydrologist for Natural Resources Conservation Service in Nevada. His January snow survey on Monday near the Mt. Rose Summit measured 7.5 feet of snow with more than 27 inches of water content—185% of the average snowpack.

The site is electronically monitored with a “snow pillow” and other equipment, but Anderson makes physical inspections throughout the winter and invites members of the media along.
