National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:
NOAA is a great resource for trending climate info, satellite radar and pinpoint extended forecasts:
(SNOTEL) USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service:
This site is kind of technical to use, but once you figure it out, it’s great to be able to refer to different SNOTEL stations for windspeed, snow depth, temperature and water content. This is not only a great way to pay attention to areas that get more snow than others, but you can also keep tabs in specific areas to get a general sense of trending snow and avalanche conditions.
