As of March 8, the UC Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Lab in Soda Springs near Lake Tahoe, California, has recorded 603″ since Oct. 1st. That’s 50 feet of snowfall in less than six months.
The CSSL shared on its Facebook page:
“We have had 10.6” (27 cm) of #snow over the last 24 hours at the lab. That brings our total to 603″ (15.32 m) since Oct 1st. This is now the 5th snowiest year since the CSSL was built in 1946. More snowfall in the forecast and it’s likely it will be moving up!” – UC Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Lab
Currently, this is the 5th snowiest winter on record for the Tahoe area. With over a month left of lift-served skiing and riding for most California resorts, it’s possible—likely, even—that the Tahoe area will finish in an even higher placement than 5th.
The question on everybody’s mind right now is obvious: will Tahoe break the record this winter?

All that drought quenching water is going to be flushed out to the ocean here in the next couple months.
Thanks to CA’s radical enviroMENTALISTS they have not built a new dams in over 60 years in that state.
CA doesn’t know how to do water or electrical engineering anymore.
The state is governed by a bunch of fairy tail stories relying on the infrastructure built 2-4 generations ago.
CA is going to have a rough go the next 20-40 years.
