Snow Quality

Leave a comment

Snow quality denoted by X, refers to the percent of the snow pack which is in the solid state (i.e. not water). When it rains like it did today X decreases as the water penetrates the snow pack. This rain also causes the snow to melt. Infact, snow melt is a function of the amount of rain, the temperature of the rain water, and the quality of the snow.
