About the data
Ski area locations were obtained from the National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center website. I include their disclaimer here: "The identification of ski locations are purely intended as informational with no implied endorsement. For further information on these ski areas, you will need to contact them directly. The locations shown are those we are aware of at the present time." I added a few ski areas in Washington state that were missing from the NOAA data.
The data on historic and projected snow depth were developed by the Climate Impacts Group (CIG) at the University of Washington for a project funded by USFS Regions 1 (Northern) and 6 (Pacific Northwest), along with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station Boise Aquatic Sciences Lab. A brief overview of this project can be found on the Cascade GIS website, along with slideshows of some of the other climate and hydrological variables from the project. GIS data and maps from the project, including the snow depth data used in this application, may be found on the Ecoshare website. For a full description of the project, including infomation on the global climate models (GCMs) used to produce the snow depth projections, you may download the full project report, entitled " Regional Climate and Hydrologic Change in the Northern US Rockies and Pacific Northwest: Internally Consistent Projections of Future Climate for Resource Management", available here.
