December 15, 2014: Shuswap Lake News and Commentary
Last week's rain and the complete snow melt in lower elevations has pushed the lake levels into a 20+ year record high for this time of the year. However, with colder temperatures and some potential snowfall in the forecast for this week, the lake levels should start to slowly drop again by mid week.
Most snow in the lower mountains around the lake has gone. However, most popular snowmobile trails still have plenty of snow for some real fun - and much more of it will be added in the coming few weeks. Park Mountain, our base indicator for the mid-elevation mountain range during the winter, still shows a snowpack well below average for this time of year.

There are still areas under dense fog during morning and evening hours near lake and rivers. Drive safely and watch out for slippery conditions, especially in the early morning.
Web site updates are done twice a week on Monday and Thursday for the rest of this year. Measurements are still taken daily.
