While I stoke up the wood-fired hot tub at WildSnow HQ, our backcountry field office in Marble, Colorado, Lou works on the webcam. Last fall, he set up a timed camera to measure snowfall and depth. He disconnected it in the spring and now is going through the process of hooking it up again. A project more fiddly than we hoped.
More than any other challenge, poor image quality has been the problem. Lou tried a few different webcams without much success of improved photos. He’ll continue to search for a better system, but in the meantime (barring force majeure), current images will be available early each morning on marbleski.org.
