Following a dry November, the Truckee, Lake Tahoe area was slammed by storms in December, setting a record for snowfall in the month.
The UC Berkley Central Sierra Snow Lab said the region broke its snowfall record for the month on Monday, surpassing the 179 inches of snowfall that fell in December 1970.
In total, the Central Sierra Snow Lab reported 212 inches of snowfall for the month, making it the third snowiest month on record. January 2017 holds the record with 238 inches of snowfall, followed by February 2019, which saw 221 inches of snow.
Ski Resorts Slammed
The storms caused closures and delays at local ski resorts as mountain operations crews worked to dig out from all the snowfall. As they began to open back up, they were met with enthusiastic skiers and boarders ready for powder. The snow was a beautiful start to the new year!
