    Integrating SNOTEL, Weather, Snow Forecast and Avalanche Reports

    For those who may be interested, here is a webpage that lets you select one of several backcountry zones in the Intermountain region, (Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Nevada). When you select the zone that you are interested in, you are taken to the backcountrydata.com site, which then provides the current snow depths, weather forecast, snow forecast and nearest avalanche center forecast related to the SNOTEL station. Not all SNOTEL stations are listed, but a representative selection from each area is listed.
    The tool, allows you to get an integrated, quick view of the snowpack, weather and snow forecast and the avalanche report for most of the mountain ranges in the region.
    Note that the hi-adventure page is simply a launch portal and once you are in the backcountrydata.com site, you can customize the listings to fit your specific needs. It also will provide you a default listing based on your devices location.
    The author for the backcountrydata.com site is Robby Milo. I developed the hi-adventure site.

    This is a nice tool. Could you add SWE to the backcountry data tool?

    Wow, cool site! Way better than me poking around several different sites (Snotel, NOAA, N. Id Avy, various weather ops). All consolidated into what I want. Thanks for putting this up.

    Hey Turbo, the SWE data is there. Just click on the desired SNOTEL site link and an interactive graph pops up with Snow Depth, SWE and Air Temp. You can toggle between 7, 14, 30, 90 days and the Water Year.
