Snow Surveys

Throughout the winter months, MRCA staff manually conduct snow surveys twice a month, as near to the 1st and 15th of the month as possible. Measurements are taken at two locations (Mountjoy and Porcupine) for snow depth and water content.

Snow depth is measured with a calibrated snow core tube. An average snow depth is calculated and recorded for each site. Please note that snow conditions can change rapidly and the snow survey measurements are only valid at the time of the measurement.

2021-2022 snow course sampling is complete effective May 15, 2022.
