Powerful California Snow Storm Buries Ski Resort in Over 10 Feet of Snow

5 months ago

A powerful California snow storm dumped more than 10 feet of snow on the Sugar Bowl ski resort in the Northern region, forcing the marketing team to dig downward several feet and tunnel through to the front door in order to access their office.

The extreme snowfall, which began late last week and continued through Monday, closed highways, ski resorts, businesses, and left thousands without power across the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

Record High Snow Totals

The Sugar Bowl, one of the more popular Northern California ski resorts, located 7,000 feet (2,134 meters) high in the mountains 46 miles (74 kilometers) west of Reno, recorded the highest snow totals from the days-long storm according to the National Weather Service in Sacramento.

For Jon Slaughter's marketing team, getting to their office has been an immense challenge in the aftermath of more than ten feet of heavy powder dumping on the ski resort over the weekend.
