What's it like?
I'm asking because I was thinking of the chance of flooding down river if we get a fast melt.

Hey win yes there has been a bunch of snow up here. I have been up to the 'Hay, and there was about 4 feet there, and I heard that there is/was 4-5 feet in the Berland area. If we get some suddenly warm weather, there will be a bunch of water makin it's way down there. Hope this helps.....

Thanks Brady...yes it does help.
I got a little bet going on if Fort Mac is going to have a flood this spring.
All signs point to yes if we have a fast melt.

Hi Winchester70. We have lots of snow up in the mountains here in Jasper, but none in the townsite. I guess most of the runoff will be headed your way
when things start to melt. I work up at Marmot Basin ski area, and it is the best(deepest) snowpack that I have seen in a long time! Better get ready for some flooding!
