(KTEN) – After rounds of rainfall in California from a historic atmospheric river event, conditions are slowly drying out.

Images are starting to appear of the massive amount of snow that fell in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.


It is believed that the Sierra Nevadas now hold the largest snowpack on Earth. As much as 240” of snow, or 20 FEET of snow, fell in Mammoth Mountain, California.


For season totals, over 330” of snow has fallen in Mammoth Mountain, CA.


Local residents took videos of themselves trudging through the impressive snowpack.


Although the excessive rainfall wreaked havoc on local roadways, California’s reservoirs are quickly rising in terms of water levels. With the increase in snowpack in the mountains, California’s reservoirs should remain relatively full throughout the summer. This is good news coming ahead of the growing season, where California has been dealing with drought conditions for years.
