Top 10 historic Sierra snow seasons

A seemingly never-ending winter at Lake Tahoe has now etched its way into the history books as the Sierra’s second-snowiest on record.

No one really knows how much snow fell on the infamous Donner Party when the pioneers were trapped atop the Sierra for months and dozens died in the winter of 1846-47. But 56.4 feet has now fallen this season at the Central Sierra Snow Lab in Soda Springs, California.
