It seems as if the snowfall of the last few years is repeating itself again at Mount Rainier National Park.
Late winter storms have again raised the snow pack totals after leveling off much of the winter.
According to data available online, nine inches of snow has fallen in the last six hours at Paradise, and more than 25 inches in the last 24 hours. The snow pack has jumped from 157 inches to 175 inches in the last 24 hours.
This year seems to be a repeat of last year. By early February 2010, the snow pack was just 86 percent of normal. But a cold, wet spring and early summer pushed the snow pack to 200 percent of normal by July, said ranger Stefan Lofgren, who tracks snowfall data for the park.
