images show the approximate amount of snow cover
on Mount Rainier, Washington for a full year. The
image with the least amount of snow shows the position
of the snow line.
Locations above the elevation of the snow line remain
snow-covered all year; locations below the snow
line alternate between being clear and covered with
snow. Examine each frame to find the month with
the least snow and identify the snow line.
