 Skiing the Cascade Volcanoes: Snowfall and Snowdepth
The most well-known Cascade snow record is certainly the 1140" snowfall at Mount Baker Ski Area during the 1998-99 season, which is a world record for seasonal snowfall at any measurement site (see this plot of snowfall and snowdepth during that season).
Of particular note is that according to the PRISM model, the maximum precipitation anywhere in the Cascade Range appears to be the 140-180+ inches occurring near Glacier Peak, which surprisingly exceeds that shown on Mounts Baker and Rainier (both noted for their world-record snowfalls).
The cause is clearly due to rain shadowing by the Klamath Mountains located to their southwest, which receive 3-4 times as much precip as this portion of the Cascades despite their somewhat lower summit elevations.

 Hypolimnetic Injection - 1994-95
If these results continue to occur on a yearly basis, the city of Cascade will surely suffer, which is why we felt it was time to step in and do something for the reservoir and the town.
Cascade sits at an elevation of approximately 4,000 feet and the mountains around it quickly rise to 9,000 feet.
The mountain creek water that we inject into the reservoir will allow the bacteria to remain living, so the excess phosphate will not be released back into the reservoir, allowing for a clean and oxygenated epilimnion, which will result in high numbers of fish.
