See Bitterroot Star story, “Snowpack is heavy, summer may be wet”
Winter snow in the mountains translates into spring, summer and fall waterflows in our rivers. So, we keep watch on the snow levels. We actually had a good snow accumulation in Dec 2015 and Jan 2016. It is still precipitating in February, but the temperatures are above average. Good news, still a good snow pack. Today I am posting some info on our current snowpack in Montana and a few photos from the mountains and Bitterroot River.

Below are Snowtel data maps for Montana in Feb. You can see that our snowpack has increased in the last two weeks. Great news.

Photo album dedicated to our good friend Terrill (Terry) Nobles, Corvallis, Montana – With out any doubt, Wapiti Waters’ (Jack Mauer) favorite friend, partner, client, and man on earth. This will never change, as sadly there will never be another man like Terry.
Terry is 93 and 1/2 years old this December (2013) and we felt compelled to start an album dedicated to Terry. As I find pictures earlier than 2005, I will scan them and add them. Also dedicated to J Craig Nobles, Lynn Dornfeld, Tori Nobles-Stephens, and Buddy Nobles, Terry’s children.
