Mother Nature Delivers!
It's good to see a storm finally come through as we've been disappointed one to many times this year and we really needed a refill. As of 9 am, our Alta-Atwater site near the base of Alta has recorded 0.72 inches of SWE with a settled new-snow depth of about 7 inches. The Alta-Collins snowstake about 1000 feet higher recorded 0.84" of SWE and about 10 or 11 inches of new snow depending on how you add up the increments. I've seen higher amounts from a couple of automated high-elevation sensors in upper Big Cottonwood Canyon. Not a huge dump, but greatly appreciated nonetheless.
