Last year’s winter was a doozy. We all have flashbacks of back-breaking snow shoveling and dogs sinking hilariously in extraordinary amounts of pow; fresh, deep days carving up the slopes and opening our doors to find a wall of snow instead of a world out there.

Here, community member-submitted photos speak many thousands of words about that shared experience as we look forward to a year of unknown snow mass in the Sierra. People were eager; we shoveled through quite a few submissions to pick our favorites.
