SNOTEL Reports

Interactive Snow Water Equivalent Graphs - Allow users to compare snow water equivalent (in inches) for any combination of historical years for the three SNOTEL sites located on Mt Charleston. Graphs also include statistical background data, such as the maximum, normal, and minimum water years, as well as shading based on the 10th, 30th, 50th, 70th, and 90th percentiles. Other interactive graph products are available here.


Monthly Snow Course Data - Manual snow tube measurements have been made at snow courses in the Spring Mountains back to 1941. Measurements are made in the spring (near March 1 and April 1) to track maximum snow water content in the snowpack.
