Highlights•Snow distribution and densification rates are marked by high intra-annual variability.•Snow cover persistence is mainly controlled by precipitation and elevation.•Snowmelt is driven by radiative fluxes.•Heat flux contribution to snowmelt increases during heat waves and rain-on-snow events.•Snow sublimation is an important component of snow ablation in high-elevation regions.
