Snowfall Measurement

We rigorously monitor snowfall all winter long from our house in Waterbury, Vermont, by collecting snow on one primary elevated snowboard, and additional snowboards distributed around our property.  We measure the snow depth using a variety of tools such as snow stakes, rulers, yardsticks, and even a calibrated ski pole for when we’re out on the ski slopes or in the backcountry.  To learn the details of the techniques we use to make these measurements, visit our snowfall measurement page:
