Snowfall trends evolve over the course of a year, and throughout the years too. Some snowfall conditions are more prevalent during seasonal cycles, allowing for patterns to arise over time. During seasonal peaks, snowpack on the mountain can reach levels as high as 152", while the average tends to sit around 41".
Residing within the Lower Copper River Watershed, this section of the mountain falls within the Alaska Hydrologic Region. The NRCS Snotel network manages the majority of snow gauges across Alaska, assigning this one a site ID of 1055.
Watersheds are composed of land areas where all the river water and mountain snow eventually flow to a common outlet. Rain that falls within the Lower Copper River watershed will find its way into the various river constituents located in the area.
