CURRENT SNOW PACK IN MONTANA: The current snow pack is holding near average or slightly below for now. The Madison range is the area of concern right now as the current snow pack has dropped to slightly below average levels. We do have the potential to pick up more snow in southwest Montana by early next week which could help give the snow pack a slight boost, but won’t be enough to push the levels in western Montana above the average for this point in the year.
