    • Worked-Out Solution

      There is a 95% probability that at least 1 inch of snow will accumulate in Packwood.

      Packwood is named after William Packwood, an explorer of Oregon and Washington. Packwood and James Longmire were assigned by the Washington Territorial Legislature to chart a low pass over the Cascade Mountains. The charted pass, called the Packwood Saddle, has never been used for a road or trail between the east and west sides of the Cascades.
