Spring Snowpack Comparison 2015 vs. 2017

Due to a massive snowpack and an incredible season, Diamond Peak has extended the 2016-17 ski season an extra week to April 23, 2017. Here's a visual comparison of the amount of snow still on the ground at Diamond Peak this year verses two years ago. These graphics are generated from our snowcats that are equipped with SNOWsat Z technology. This technology gives us an accurate display of the current snow depth and helps us be more efficient in snowmaking and grooming and provide a great product to our skiers. Diamond Peak is one of the few resorts in the United States who has this particular technology. 

The colors indicate the depth of the snow. The bright red is about a foot deep, lime green is 2.5 feet deep, brown is 7 to 10.99 feet deep and the teal blue is 11+ feet deep.
