The snow keeps falling in the eastern Sierra. Skiers and hikers in Lake Tahoe and Mammoth Mountain were treated to rare dusting overnight, extending what’s already been described as an endless winter.
“Like they say, ‘It can snow anytime of year in the Sierra.’ And today is one of those days,” meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Sacramento reported this morning.
The Weather Service didn’t have snowfall amounts available Monday morning, but it appears that at least one inch had fallen by 8:30 a.m., meteorologist Mike Kochasic tells Curbed
Snow in June “is fairly rare,” Kochasic says. “There’s a lot of zeroes here in the climate record, but it’s not of unheard of.”
Mammoth Mountain—one of Southern Californians’s favorite skiing destinations— announced last month that it would keep its lifts running daily until August, “for one of our longest seasons in history.”
Kochasic says the heaviest snow is already tapering off, but a few scattered showers could still bring light snow or flurries later this morning.
