A look west toward the mountains may look a little daunting.

But the snowpack is actually well below where it was last year at this time.

The Little Elbow summit is at 257 millimetres, down from 400 last year.

Mount Odlum is at 314, also well below last year's 525.

And Lost Creek is at 485 while it was at 700 last year at this time.

We need a combination of a fast melt and heavy rains before we can expect any kind of flooding.
