I always like looking at this. 82 inches since Jan 27.Feb 2, 2021 at 4:50 pm #3697012Kevin BabioneBPL Member
Living in Pennsylvania (where we just got about 12 inches over 2 days), I cannot fathom getting 82 inches of snow in 2-3 days. It’s simply mind-blowing to me! And that was on top of what they already had!

I love those reports. The two rangers who write them are a delight–always finding some wildlife notes to add into the snow depths and wind chill.Feb 3, 2021 at 3:17 pm #3697194Eric BlumensaadtBPL Member

Great photos and VERY different from the White Wolf -to- Meadows scenery I’ve seen while backpacking in the summer.Feb 3, 2021 at 3:41 pm #3697201
The rangers usually update weekly. They get around really well in the snow and will post photos from well out of T meadows. With six plus new feet of snow, they’re not venturing as far last week, as they noted.
One can extrapolate a bit about high country snow conditions from their photos.Feb 10, 2021 at 6:28 pm #3698661
tuolumne from about a week ago. Better! More storms on the way, but not like this last one.

Having spent a bunch of time up there in the winter when I used to live in the park, I am more envious of the Tuolumne winter ranger job than any other job on earth.Feb 12, 2021 at 9:27 pm #3699143Brian HBPL Member
Judging how the snowpack looks around Tahoe, even the east side, I know it is looking deep up in Tuolumne Mdw.
