Squaw Valley picked up three feet of snow in 24 hours on Wednesday, bringing their seven-day total to seven feet. (Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows)

California snowfall hasn’t been outstanding since 2011, when by the end of February, the central Sierra Nevada had received all of its normal snowfall for an entire winter.

But given the snow reports over the past week, and what the National Weather Service is expecting through the middle of January, this year may have the potential to be a blockbuster — exactly what the California snow tourism industry needs.

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows north of Lake Tahoe got three feet of snow on Wednesday alone, which brought their seven-day total to seven feet. It’s so much snow, even the Olympic-sized operation needed to take a moment to catch up Thursday morning.

Heavenly, which is south of Lake Tahoe and at a slightly lower elevation, got 70 inches in seven days. They, too, had a boatload of snow to manage Thursday morning.

The winter storm is waning but another round is expected between Saturday and Monday. Snow levels will probably be higher in the next storm — possibly as high as 9,000 feet — which means everything below that elevation will fall as rain since temperatures will be warm.

The burms are getting pretty high here in Talmont.. Good ol fashion Sierra Cement..!
