- In Pacific Northwest: Falling Snow, get an expansive collection of falling snow and ice from the pristine wilderness of the Eastern Cascades, Washington. Hear the soothing crystalline rain of snowflakes gently falling in a winter wonderland. Hear tree-alanches as snow and ice plastered to branches is dislodged by sun-melt and wind. Hear massive wind gusts slowly wandering down valleys over 60 seconds. Hear hellacious debris clouds as gusts hit local canopies and dislodge snow hurricanes of powder, ice, and branches.
- This library offers you a large collection of falling snow from soothing snowflakes to snow hurricanes. I hope you enjoy listening to the awesome power of wintertime in the remote mountains of Washington.

96 kHz and 192 kHz:
- I always record and archive at 192 kHz for conservation and preservation purposes.
- However, all sounds are delivered in 96 kHz unless there was useful frequency content present above 48 kHz. Then the audio is delivered at 192 kHz.
- In these ambiences, no useful frequency content was present above 48 kHz. So all sounds are delivered at the 96 kHz sampling rate.
STEREO AND QUAD FILES:
- Stereo: front mid/side decoded to left and right.
- Quad: double mid/side decoded to quad.
STEREO ONLY FILES:
- These recording were made with Lom Usi and do not include a quad version.
