California sees nearly 11 feet of snow, with another foot or so expected

California’s ski resorts were hit by a massive blizzard this weekend, with some mountain towns seeing more than 10 feet of snow, according to the total snowfall data released Monday.

Sugar Bowl measured 126 inches of snow, topping the list, followed by Soda Springs CalTrans’s 116 inches of snow and Kingvale CalTrans’s 106 inches.

Other spots that saw between 5 and 8 feet of snow include Palisades Tahoe’s 93 inches, Dodge Ridge’s 89 inches, Sierra Snow Lab’s 75.2 inches, Boreal’s 74 inches and Eagles Lakes CalTrans’s 66 inches.

Ski resorts had to shut down lifts Monday morning and warned guests to expect further delays as they continued digging themselves out of the snow.

As the winter weather began to ease, forecasters warned of another storm that will bring heavy snow to northern California and southern Oregon as it moves southward Tuesday and Wednesday.

Winter weather warnings are in effect, and the National Weather Service (NWS) predicts about 1 to 2 feet of additional snow.

While the second storm will not be as powerful as the one this past weekend, it will make recovery from the blizzard even more difficult.

“While these totals will be much less than the previous more long lasting storm, travel will remain difficult and the additional heavy snows will exacerbate recovery from the first storm,” the NWS said.

“The good news for this area of the country is that after the next round of heavy snows, more tranquil weather is expected for the remainder of the week,” the NWS continued.
