A few words on the Snow at Warner Canyon

Warner Canyon has no detail snow data, so we estimate 150 inches snowfall, as it is in the rain shadow of the Cascade mountains.

Accumulation and Preservation

Warner Canyon's early season accumulation should be slower than average for western areas due to modest snowfall. Altitude is on the low side but exposure is northeast, so snow preservation should be decent. February is probably the safest time to ski Warner Canyon.
