snow depth embellishment

Full review

As of 2-13-21 the snow depth at the peak of homewood was 146 inches at the peak (7900 ft) while the snow depth at the base was 94 inches (6200 ft). Both of these numbers are definitely embellished. The season total is 183 inches at the peak, and 111 inches at the base. Total snowfall in California usually compresses to about half its depth. Therefore, the true depth of snow at Homewood is likely 90 inches at the peak, and 55 inches at the base. Additionally, there have been several warm weeks during this winter with lots of melting. Nearby squaw valley is reporting 63 inches at the base (6200 ft) and 105 at the peak (8200 ft).Northstar, also nearby, has an 80 inch base depth (at 8600 ft) and a 34 inch base depth at the bottom (6200 ft). With so little total snowfall, and such a deep base compared to other regional mountains, it is clear that the snow depth of Homewood Mountain Resort is EMBELLISHED.
