The Sierra Nevada Mountains were slammed by as much as four feet of snow over the last weekend.
Skiers and snowboarders were enjoying endless powder runs, but heavy snow doesn’t mean the rest of the world doesn’t have to continue on.
The video below shows a train plowing 4 feet (48 inches) of snow from tracks near Soda Springs, California.
It’s mesmerizing to watch.

WXChasing: “This is in Soda Springs, CA just on the west side of Donner Pass. I couldn’t shoot in the pass due to visibility being below required for drone flight. #trains are Union Pacific. I’ll openly admit I do not know a lot about trains but always wanted to get shots of them #plowing and took up #trainspotting for a day. Perhaps a #railway fan can help me out in the comments. Shots took place after 4 feet of snow fell in Soda Springs #California after a major #snow#storm.”
Incredible drone work by WXChasing!
I don’t know much about trains, but this video makes me want to learn more.
I’m trying to fathom how much power is behind that train for it to brush off 4 feet of snow so easily. It’s remarkable.
