“The Sierra Nevada is really living up to its name “snowy mountain range” this year,” NASA wrote on Twitter. “With snow reports coming in feet & snow storms still moving in, it’s now home to the snowiest ski resort in the U.S.”

This February has seen record snowfall in Northern California, which will have a lasting effect on water storage and wildfires through the coming year. The National Weather Service reports that California snowpack is currently 146 percent of average for this time of year.
