for 1 Apr 2011 came out this morning:
The snowpack is far worse/deeper than last year in every PCT and CDT state  
but NM; compare it to 2010:
    It's gonna be a tough year for thru hikers, and  section hikers like 
me; the streams will be dangerous into July. I'm totally  having to replan my 
summer; at least I can finish NM in Apr-May, but I've  decided to start 
earlier. Water may well be a huge problem in NM this year,  as my Big Bend part 
of TX and all of NM are extremely dry. Wildfires are a daily  occurrence 
here right now, as we've essentially had no rain for over half a  year.
    The AZT & GET are affected low snow, therefore  low water probably. 
They'll get hotter earlier I'd guess. We're warmer than  normal here in Big 
Bend, and have been for 2-3 weeks.
