CSAS News 2002/2003 Summary

Our first, 'bootstrap' season, the winter of 2002/2003, was devoted to preparing a foundation upon which to build our vision of a world-class snow research and teaching venue. These selected highlights represent the broad range of activities required to create a research center from the ground up! Of course, our best memories came from time spent in the field, with visiting college groups, scouting for study plots, and hatching projects with our research partners.
