Before and After Photos Show a Two-Story Tahoe Apartment Building Completely Buried in Snow

We’ve been talking about the historic snowfall in Tahoe for the past month, but sometimes it’s hard to put the snowpack into perspective. We’ve talked about how it’s been the snowiest winter in 70 years, and how the local ski resorts have the most snow in the country.

But if that doesn’t help you understand the massive snowfall that has fallen on the Tahoe Basin this winter, we have some pictures to show you.

Before and after photos were recently released showing a 2-story apartment building in Kirkwood that is now completely buried by snow. Here’s the before:

And here’s the after:

Now do you get it? That’s A LOT of snow.

With some areas of Tahoe surpassing 700 inches of snowfall this winter, and a forecast that doesn’t look likes it’s going to let up soon, there is now a real chance that 800 inches could fall on Tahoe this season. That’s only happened twice in recorded history – 1952 and 1938.

Now with the statistics and photos in your head, it’s time to come to grips that this is a once-in-a-lifetime winter in Tahoe.

  3. Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
    manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but
