Snow Pack

Snow pack levels down in the Bella Coola Valley bottom range from a few inches in the western end of the valley to 10-12 inches as you move up valley further inland.  It's been a cool start to the month of March, but again the weather this weekend has been pleasant in the valley.  I think the snow pack is just average or less in the mountains and the photo today is of the snow gauge in Heckman Pass right as you break over the escarpment headed for the Bella Coola Valley on Highway 20.  At 5 feet this snow pack is about average in recent years, but certainly well below what can accumulate on a big winter.
