22 Apr 11 - "The snow at the summit of Buffalo Pass never has been deeper than it was Friday morning," says this article by Tom Ross in the Craig Daily Press.

"Mike Gillespie, Colorado Snow Survey supervisor for the Natural Resources Conservation Service in Denver, confirmed that the snow depth at the Tower measuring site stood at 180 inches, or 15 feet, setting a record for measured snow depths there that go back to the mid-1960s. The previous record was the 175-inch snow depth recorded on April 25, 1978."

While the snowpack at the Tower site is 134 percent of average for the date, some of the most profound measurements are at sites below 9,000 feet, says Ross. These include the Dry Lake Campground at the base of Buffalo Pass, where the snowpack measures 171 percent of average.

The Elk River measuring site stands at 160 percent of average, Lynx Pass is at 148 percent of average, and Crosho Lake measures 163 percent of average.
