Mean seasonal
snow transport is calculated to determine the amount of snow
the snow fence will need to contain. 
The mean seasonal snow
transport (Q_{t}) is calculated using the formula
to the right. The equation utilizes the fetch distance
and snow water equivalent found in the previous two
steps.
For the case study
at Mountain Lake, the mean season snow transport (Q_{t})
is 22.3 t/m.



Formula for Mean Seasonal Snow Transport
Q_{t} = 1500 (S)(SWE)(r)(10.14^{F/3000})
 Q_{t} = mean seasonal snow
transport (t/m).
 S = mean snowfall over SAS (m).
 SWE = mean snow water equivalent.
 r = relocation factor for Mountain Lake,
0.63, (see map below)
 F = fetch distance in meters.
