We talked to Randall Osterhuber at the UC Berkeley’s Central Sierra Snow Laboratory at 7,000-feet on Donner Summit, CA. Randall and his team keep the most accurate records of Tahoe snowpack, snowfall totals, and more.
2015/16 Tahoe Snow Numbers:
- 368″ of snowfall this winter which = 91% of average to date
- 65″ of precipitation this winter which = 107% of average to date
