Steep Banks of Snow Narrow Roads Around Lake Tahoe After Record Falls

Fresh snow up to December 30 brought the monthly total for the Lake Tahoe area to 212 inches, the most seen for a December since the UC Berkeley Central Sierra Snow Lab began operating in 1970.

The National Weather Service in Reno issued a special weather statement on Thursday, warning that the coldest air in nearly five years was set to hit into the New Year’s weekend. Credit: @Lake.Girl.530 via Storyful
