Hardrock 100

Silverton Snow Report - March 2019

February brought about 50 inches of much welcomed snow to Silverton. That got us to roughly 120% of normal. And the snow continues with more than two feet of snow in the first week of March.
The long range weather models are showing warmer than normal and somewhat wetter than normal conditions up through Hardrock time.
