Lassen Park Highway Closed Due to Snowfall

The early-season storm that soaked Northern California on Sunday has brought some snow to high-elevation areas. As the rain moved into Lassen Volcanic National Park it turned to snow, closing the park’s highway and giving the park an unseasonable dusting of snow.

On Sunday afternoon, park officials announced the highway would be closed until the storm passed and snowfall was no longer a hazard on the roadway:

Now on Monday morning, the webcam at the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center shows snow prevalent throughout the southeast side of the park:

Unfortunately, the CalTrans webcam on the north side of the park is down for repair.

It looks like a beautiful winter scene in Lassen following some odd mid-September precipitation. The storm is expected to last until Tuesday/Wednesday, so the park’s highway may be closed for another day or two.
