It’s official, California’s Northern Sierra mountain range is currently in the midst of its wettest “water year” in recorded history. According to the California Department of Water Resources, the northern Sierra had recorded an accumulated average of 90.9 inches of water across eight stations since Oct. 1. That breaks the previous record of 88.5 inches, set during the 1982-83 water year.

Sugar Bowl Ski Resort is reporting the most snow of any Tahoe ski resort with 782 inches of snow this season.

With the water year not ending until September 30, it’s still unknown how wet the record-setting year in the Northern Sierra will be.
