San Juan Snow Conditions - December Update

Now that the lottery results have settled, all eyes are turning towards the San Juan snowpack especially in light of the predicted "Super El Niño" for the 2023-2024 season. El Niño events are characterized by warmer-than-average temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean and generally results in greater snowfall in the San Juans. The caveat this year are variations in the location of the thermal anomaly in the Eastern Pacific which could results in less than predicted snowfall in the San Juans. We should have a better picture by January. In the meantime, the December snowpack at the Red Mountain SNOTEL site is right at the historical average (about 25”), so we have a Three Bears situation: not too much, not too little, but just about right!
