Average maximum winter snowpack was mapped at a scale of 1:250,000 for a large area southwest of Fort Nelson, British Columbia.. The study area includes the drainage basins of the Muskwa, Tuchodi, Racing and Tetsa Rivers. Also included are portions of the Kledo, Dunedin and Toad Rivers. This area covers map sheets 94G13, 94J4-5, 94J11-14, 94F15-16, 94K1-3, 94K6-11, 94K14-16 and 94N2. Snowpack classes relevant to ungulates were designated by the regional wildlife biologist, Fort St. John and were the basis of the mapping. A second part of the project included writing this report to outline the techniques used in producing the snowpack maps and to discuss the effects of slope, aspect, wind and forest cover on snow depths.
