Donner Summit Official Snowfall Released

The Central Sierra Snow Lab has released it’s official snowfall total for this year.  It’s 53 – 1/2 feet!  That’s a lot of snow!  However, believe it or not,  it is not the record for the largest total snowfall.  The greatest total snowfall was in the mid-1930s.

But a record has been made with the snow depth as of June 7th at 7.8 feet –the deepest ever on this date.
