Violent snowstorms in the Sierra from late November into early December have boosted statewide snowpack to more than double normal levels for the time of year, according to California Department of Water Resources data.
According to the most recent snow surveys, snowpack as of last Wednesday stood at 106 percent of normal across the state, and higher in some parts of the mountain range.
Snowpack in the central Sierra, from Tahoe to Yosemite, was at 113 percent of average as of last Wednesday, while snowpack in the south Sierra stood at a staggering 125 percent of average last Thursday thanks to a huge storm that brought feet of snow to Mono County.
Further snow is forecast for Tahoe, according to National Weather Service Reno, which will further add to the snowpack.
