NID snow survey for March: snow water content is in top five for all March surveys

May contain: nature, outdoors, clothing, glove, adult, male, man, person, plant, tree, snow, footwear, shoe, leisure activities, skiing, and sport

The English Mountain snow course (7,100 feet) had 152.8 inches of snow with a water content of 60.8 inches. Findley Peak (6,500 feet) had a snowpack of 129.9 inches and a 46.5-inch water content.

For comparison, the historical March 1 average water content for the five mountain courses is 27.8 inches.
