Some time ago I posted to both the Posthole and PCT-L sites information and methods on how to use Postholer Maps to predict snow level depths. Please see https://www.postholer.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2847 https://www.postholer.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2847 and there is also a reference to the PCT-L post. The post is long and some may find it complicated. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Also I posted this to the PCT-L so others may benefit from our conversation.Thumper aka dofdear > On March 25, 2019 at 2:04 PM Susan Virnig <susan at newstories.org> wrote:> > Hey, Thumper,> > Thanks a lot!

It says, " Trail snow takes a single modeled value at thousands of specific locations along the trail…” So if the map is based on modeled values, do you know how useful it is? I ran into him once about 13 miles north of Seiad Valley, and when he gave his name, I asked, “Are you THE Postholer?” and indeed it was him! I thanked him so much for all his work! > > —Susan> > > > > On Mar 25, 2019, at 10:28 AM, DANIEL COHEN < dofdear at cox.net mailto:dofdear at cox.net > wrote:> > > > Hi Susan,> > I've responded in kind,> > > > 1.
