In the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming, clearcutting mature lodgepole pine in blocks of 5, 10, and 20 acres increased peak snow accumulation over that of uncut stands. Greatest response to clearcutting was found in the east aspect. Greatest influence of clearcut block size on snow accumulation occurred on the south aspect. On south and east aspects, snow disappearance was similar on all clearcut blocks.
