Snowpack SWE of 29 inches surpasses 1952 estimated levels

PARK CITY, Utah — As more snow continues to fall across the state, the statewide snowpack snow water equivalent continues to climb, reaching 29 inches on Tuesday. Reaching 29 inches milestone surpasses the 1952 estimated level of 28.8 inches, making this year’s snowpack higher than any season in over 71 years.

Social media posts, such as from Alta Ski Area, saying that the resort has received over 2 feet in the last 24 hours, means that the snowpack will only continue to rise to heights never seen before or at least not in recent memory.

Time will tell where the melt will finally stop the climb, but it doesn’t appear to be anytime soon if this week’s monster storm is any indication.

Snowpack surpasses record for highest snow water equivalent since automated recording started in 1981
