I've seen a very detailed map that looks at avg snowfall within 20 miles or so of the Appalachian Trail, but that's about it.

I can get you a precip map for VT but I dont even think I've seen a snowfall map of VT. Very drastic from elevation to elevation...would be cool to see a high-res version of average snowfall in all the topography/local snowfall maxs and mins.

The App Trail map is incredibly detailed as I recall. I wish I could find something like that for eastern NY. I'm not sure what data source they used to make that map.

I'm curious about what the average snowfall is out here where I am versus KALB, but numerous netsearches haven't yielded much. BGM has a nice snowfall page integrating their co-op observers, but that doesn't extend beyond Otsego/Delaware Counties.

As an aside to this.... When I was going to SUNY Albany I found bound volumes of NY's nws co-op observer books with historic data on daily snowfall and daily snowcover at the various locations. They were a lot of fun to look at. This was circa late 80/early 90s and maybe that stuff is computerized now.

That set of maps is awesome but the web link is dead now and I can't find it.

Some guy who is a hiking enthusiast not a met, made hand drawn annual snowfall maps of every inch of the App Trail.

It took him forever and he used a variety of data sources. The maps are very accurate.

Sopmebody must have a copy.

This is what I can find

http://www.aldha.org/snowfall.htm

Seems like he didnt want any reproduction of the maps, will make finding it very difficult.

This probably wont work. There are really no copies on the net. Its a shame for sure to lose those maps.

Only hope is if someone saved it to their hard drive.

I was able to pull atleast "map24" from this page, the internet archive. Though the site is very unreliable... it'll report that it doesnt have the image, then when you try it 10 mins later it finds it, along with many "connection failures".

http://web.archive.org/web/20040111105507/...y.net/snowmaps/

If you play around long enough several maps could probably be found.

-At the bottom is also an e-mail for the guy, which somebody might be able to get in contact with him.

This is a great site that someone posted earlier in this thread (http://gis.ncdc.noaa...atls/index.html) but how are you guys getting the legend/key to show up? I don't see it as an option.
