: BC Snowpack website?

Does anyone know of a website that lists the snowpack or accumulated precipitation for various BC drainages (similar to SNOTEL in the US)

http://www.wrcc.dri.edu/cgi-bin/sno_narr3_pl

If the Dean doesn't get some snow this winter so that we have a significant runoff this spring, not to mention an insulation layer on the glaciers, 2005 could be like 2004.

Thanks

Good evening,
I use Sno Country, they list 25 Ski Areas in B.C. including Whistler / Blackcomb. It gives me up-to-date snow totals and packs plus weather conditions and cams for dozens of ski areas in N.America! Yea, it's a dot com, all one word.

Thanks DH. The ski areas are helpful but I have no way of knowing what is normal so have no idea if we are still in a drought or not. Sno-forecast only lists southern US resorts, unfortunately.

Anyone else have any ideas. I no the BC government has satelite uplink monitors, I just can't find out where to access the information.
