SNOWPACK DISTRIBUTION

QUICK STATS

RECENT SNOWFALL TOTALS

In Vermont, snowpack conditions vary across its numerous mountain ranges, which contribute to the state's water supply through runoff rivers and watersheds. The Green Mountains, particularly the northern and central sections, receive the highest snowfall due to orographic lifting from prevailing northwest winds. Mount Mansfield, the state's highest peak, often boasts the deepest snowpack. The snowpack in these ranges is crucial as it slowly melts during spring, replenishing rivers like the Winooski, Lamoille, and Mad, which feed into Lake Champlain. Winter climate characteristics in Vermont include average temperatures ranging from 10°F to 30°F (-12°C to -1°C) and an annual snowfall of around 80 inches (200 cm). Interesting facts about snow science in Vermont include the establishment of the world's first snow research station on Mount Mansfield in 1934 by Wallace Atwood, contributing to advancements in avalanche forecasting and snowpack analysis.
