Last Day Cleared: Wednesday, March 29, 2023
Number of Days Cleared: 43
Our crews began clearing dark and early at 3 AM in Tahoe Donner, 2:30 AM at The Boulders, and 4 AM in Old Greenwood. We measured 8″- 12″ of overnight snow in higher elevations and 6″- 8″ in lower elevations. Town operations plowed MOST of the roads during the night last night meaning that we are catching berms this morning as well.
This storm is set to pass through by tomorrow, Thursday (3/30/23) afternoon followed by a mixture of partly sunny and scattered snow showers each day through at least next Wednesday, April 5th. This appears to be followed by a drier pattern in the 2nd week of April, but things can change as we have seen this happen plenty of times this winter.
Travel Plans? Check in with Caltrans Road Conditions prior to heading out and be prepared for winter driving conditions. BE ADVISED. The fluctuating weather has created difficult driving conditions for CHP – Truckee, the Town of Truckee, and the Truckee Police Department to report on. If you need to travel, check in with Caltrans Road Conditions before heading out and be prepared for winter driving conditions. If we all do our part and plan ahead then it dramatically assists in mitigating traffic issues and keeping roads cleared for essential travel.
PARKING PADS MAY NEED TO BE USED FOR SNOW STORAGE: As you might have noticed, the snow walls are stacking up higher than even our New Holland tractors (the big blue ones) meaning that snow storage and places to blow snow from your driveways are diminishing.
As previously mentioned, this record-breaking winter has made driveways much narrower as the snow piles up and banks settle back in with temperatures rising. As the heavy snow continues to fall, we will see additional snow shed from trees, powerlines, and snow banks into driveways. Please DO NOT shovel snow from decks, entries, and garbage containers and call for a tractor to clear it.
PLEASE MAKE EYE CONTACT with any operator before approaching or coming near the machine.
Please make sure you plan your travels accordingly and leave yourself enough time to get there slowly!

CHP Roads & Highways Report
No current updates, but roads are still slick and so CHP has advised that you please prepare for slick roads and potential traffic due to these varied conditions we are experiencing.
Please avoid abandoning and parking your vehicle on the side of the road during a snowstorm, it will get towed…. and it’s not a good idea especially if the snow plows don’t see it covered in snow.
