Abstract
The computerized Geographic Snow Information System (GSIS) DRES predicts snow depth and density over a given area based on meteorological and physiographic information. Vehicle mobility over snow covered terrains will be assessed to a greater degree if the physical and engineering properties of the snowpack can be incorporated. Data collected at Fernie, B.C. in February 1990 will augment the 1989 data for the same site.
