According to Oregon State Hydrologist, John Lea, the snowpack at the timberline level of Mt Hood is 137% of average. This is not a record, but it does bode well for skiers and snowboarders. All of this snow is also good news for the summer; for now, there are no concerns about a water shortage for this summer.

 
Snow measured nearly 10 feet in the Bull Run watershed at the end of January. That's 348 percent of average! By the end of February, the snow had melted down to a wopping 288% of average. Here is a picture of the Bull Run Cabin at the end of January.
