Snow pillows and radio telemetry sites in remote mountainous areas are more costly to locate than regular snow courses. Considerably more time and effort is necessary for selection of good data collection sites which will provide a sound basis for streamflow forecasting. Criteria for site selection are outlined and multiple regression analysis provided for snow courses on five Montana streams. Findings for determining good snow course locations are cited.
