CB Avalanche Center2016-17 Observations

Location: Paradise Divide Area
Date of Observation: 01/13/2017
Name: Art Mears
Subject: SWE Record at Schofield

Snowpack: The storm just ended was a big SWE dump at Schofield Pass but not a record in the last 31 seasons. February 13 – 20, 1986 saw the SWE increase from 26″ to 40″ (about 14″) in an 8 day period. This ended with a 3.5″ SWE increase on the last day. We were not recording HS at that time. We did not have a “level 5” at that time either but if there had been it was probably at level 5 for 3 to 4 days.
