Repeated atmospheric river storms have produced record snow pack in the Sierra mountains. These repeated winter snowstorms have left California towns’ homes buried.

This crazy drone video shows multi-story homes completely buried in snow with another storm on the way with forecasts for up to 12 feet of additional snow. Travel across the passes will almost certainly be closed.

Dodge Ridge Mountain Resort RECORD

This is a winter we’ll all be talking about for a long time to come.

Dodge Ridge Mountain Resort located near Pinecrest, CA, broke its all-time season snowfall record today on March 13 with 654″ of snow this season so far.

Dodge Ridge shared on its Facebook page:

“Records are meant to be broken! As of today March 13th we have officially broken our recorded all-time season snowfall record, previously set in the 10/11 season at 643″! Now sitting at 654″ on the season this has truly been a winter we’ll all remember for a long time to come! Looks like we’re going to need to rename the T-Bar!”

More snow is on the forecast for Dodge Ridge along with California’s other ski areas in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Lake Tahoe

According to the UC Berkeley Central Snow Laboratory at 6,900′ on Donner Pass, CA, which has been keeping precise snowfall records since 1946, the Lake Tahoe area has officially reached the title of third snowiest winter in recorded history as of today, March 13.

The UCB Snow Lab has seen 651″ of snowfall this season so far.
“Another 13.2″ (33.5 cm) of snow over the last 24 hours has taken us to the third snowiest winter on record at the lab! We now have 651″ (1653 cm) from Oct 1 to present.”

It looks like this season in Tahoe will easily end up as the #2 biggest winter in recorded history, with only 7 more inches of snow needed to hit that #2 spot.

Will Tahoe break the record this year?

The deepest winter the Central Sierra Snow Lab recorded was 812 inches in the winter of 1951/52. That’s exactly 161″ away, and Tahoe still has half of March and all of April to get there.

And more storms are about to slam the region…
