Sitting north of Pocatello Idaho I can see snow up on the hillside at about 7800.
Last week there were still drifts in the pass at 6500 feet,,

And we still have flood warnings from melting snow.

I can see Pikes Peak from my place. Snow is down to about 9500 ft, just below tree line. Usually we can see snow until the first of July or so up there.

We had a lot of snow and an unusual Spring north wind storm in March. I can look out the front door and see deep drifts on the northern slope under 6000 feet maybe 7 miles from where Im sitting Pocatello is at 4500 feet.

Those two March storms were really hard on Wyoming game
