There are a lot of people who would like to see more snow in Colorado's mountains. Water managers say statewide snowpack that feeds the water supply is short.
Reports from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, statewide snowpack is at 71% of average and it is at 52% of what we had last year at this time. Last year the mountains got very heavy snow so reservoirs right now are high at 105% of average storage.
It is still early in the snow season. Typically the most snowpack build-up happens in March and April.
