Time Lapse Snow Pack Video

The movie below compresses about one thousand photos taken from the RMBL permanent weather station near the summit of Snodgrass Mountain into a movie with each frame shown for a fraction of a second. Up to three photos are taken each day (8am, noon and 4pm) of the same fixed location from October 7th, 2009 until Feb 19, 2011 with much of the summer edited out.

During 2009, the total snow fall at billy barr’s house was 11.07 meters (36.3 feet), but average snow pack was only 1.09 meters (3.6 feet). Watch as snow pack on Snodgrass Mountain increases on snowy (cloudy) days and decreases on sunny and/or warm days.
