The Sierras Get Crushed with Snow

Lake Tahoe, CA Jan. 25--After waiting more than two months for a significant snowfall, Mother Nature has finally answered California's call. A storm off the Pacific Ocean hit the Sierra Nevada Mountains and dumped huge amounts of snow in the upper elevations. The higher-based, southern Sierra resorts, such as Mammoth and Kirkwood, received the brunt of the storm, while a mix of snow and rain hit the northern areas.

January brought Mammoth Mountain 12 feet and three of them fell in the last 24 hours. Kirkwood has gotten well over 5 feet in the last 24 hours to bring their base up to 120 inches and the snow is still falling.

>In north Lake Tahoe, Alpine Meadows received 2-3 feet in the last 24 hours, while Sugarbowl and Squaw Valley got 18-24 inches bringing their bases over the 100 inch mark.

The forecast for Northern California calls for clear skies the rest of the week. However, keep that shovel handy because another storm is expected to hit the region next weekend. It certainly looks as if winter has finally arrived in the Sierra Nevadas.
