In Tahoe Donner, one of the largest resort community in Truckee, CA.  Real Estate Inventory (Homes For Sale – Single Family) has been very low for most of the year and 2013 is starting off in the same direction. Sales are moving in the opposite direction and have increased by 26% from 2011 to 2012. The total number of sales in Tahoe Donner for the year of 2012 was 270 for SF properties. Compare that with 2011 the number was 215 Single Family properties sold. Indicating that the real estate market in Tahoe Donner is definitely picking up.

PostHeaderIcon TAHOE SNOWFALL YEARLY TOTALS SINCE 1879-2010 AT DONNER SUMMITT

IS THIS THE YEAR WE BREAK THE SNOWFALL RECORD? 

We have received almost 750” of snow this year, which is about 62 feet of snow (enough to cover a 5 story building). We need to get a total of 840 inches to make this the snowiest year ever breaking the 1938 record.  If you’re wondering what were the five snowiest winters at Norden (in order) are – 1938, 1952, 1880, 1890 and 1895. 

Records have been kept since 1878 marking it the longest data set in Sierra Nevada. The Tamarack station, at 8,000 feet elevation in Alpine County, was active for a relatively short period of time.  Not only was the seasonal snowfall record was set there, but California’s greatest snow depth of 37.6 feet was measured there in 1911.  The United States greatest monthly snowfall record of 32.5 feet occurred there during January 1911. 

To put the 2011 season in perspective, as of March 28th we are in the top 10 years of the most snow.  See below and attached the Donner Summit Snowfall from 1879 – 2010 by the CSSL.
