A few words on the Snow at Soda Springs

Soda Springs has very good snow frequency of 16.2% of winter days with 6 inches or more and 33% of winter months with 90 inches or more, but also endures 24% of winter months with less than 30 inches. Despite its big dumps, Soda Springs is more known as a learning area due to its modest vertical and pitch.

Accumulation and Preservation

Soda Springs is easier to cover than most Sierra areas due to its moderate pitch. However, California droughts can be extreme, so even the snowiest areas are less than ¼ open at Christmas in the worst 15% of seasons. Although Soda Springs is mostly north facing, the open slopes are sun exposed so spring conditions are likely from February onwards in warm weather.
