Settled snow on Buff Pass measures 54 inches

— Longtime Steamboat weather tracker and snow researcher Art Judson reports that the latest check on his snow stake on Buffalo Pass measured a settled snow depth of 54 inches.

The measurement was taken at noon Sunday, with a heavy snow squall yet to come late Sunday afternoon.

The automated snow measuring system operated by the Natural Resources Conservation Service on Buffalo Pass is not presently posting data to the Internet.

The 54 inches at Judson’s unofficial weather station compares to a settled base of 39 inches reported atop Storm Peak by the Steamboat Ski Area.
