New Snow – 24hr:
The new snow represents the amount of snow over a 24 hour period, usually from 8 am to 8 am, depending on when the board is cleared.
This is often called snow base, this is the current amount of snow at the snow measurement location, at the top of Harry’s Dream Lift.
In 2004 Beaver Mountain contracted with Intermountain Environmental, Inc., Logan, UT (www.inmtn.com) to upgrade and maintain a weather station and snow monitoring site on and near the summit above the Harry’s Dream Lift. The weather station is located on a 50 ft. Microwave tower at the summit. The snow monitoring site is located about 25 yards down the Northeast side from the summit. It measures new snow and the total snow accumulations.
