I’ve changed the methodology used to produce the morning ski reports as of yesterday, 13 Feb 2020. As you may or may not know, SnowAlarm collates ski reports from around the continent from various sources, including the ski areas themselves, and you can sign up for free to have these emailed or texted to you.
Some of these sources allow the ski areas to report through the day, so my previous methodology of choosing the first available morning report could produce incomplete data depending upon the source. This made it difficult to tally the 24 hour snowfall totals over multi-day storms.
The morning report is now based upon the latest available ski report before 10 am local time. This now allows for the easy retrieval of 24 hour snowfall totals from previous days.
