4 inches of snow on Mt Washington last night

Spencer’s slightly silly snow statistics IS BACK

How many inches of snow on Mt Washington per year? 281

On average how much snow do you need to melt to get one inch of water? 10

In the cottonwood canyons of Utah, how many inches of snow do you need to get one inch of water? 18

Give Spencer a year and a mountain range where they had the most snow there ever. Adirondacks 2019

Theja is going north this weekend and then maybe to the loj and hiking or mountain biking
