November 19, 2019: Shuswap Update
It has been a while since the last commentary update. However, all winter preparations are finally out of the way and updates should return to at least once a week. Lake level and snowpack information continue to be updated daily throughout the winter.

Winter is coming quickly to the Shuswap. Snow lines are already down to below 1,000m and snow at lake elevations are likely just a week or two away. The recent rain period dumped a lot of snow into the higher mountains, increasing the Hunters Range snowpack to over 100cm (3+ ft). The Park Mountain and Celista Mountain snowpack is just slightly lower. Most snowmobile trails have enough snow for an early winter-sport adventure this year. Overall, the mountain snowpack is now higher in comparison to last year at this time.

The rain of the past few days has brought the Shuswap Lake levels slightly above the 20-year average. Water temperatures are holding steady in the lower 40s F. The weather should get colder but mostly sunny this week before changing to rain and snow on the weekend.
