RENO — Winter just won't let go.

Another potent storm dumped heavy snow Thursday night and Friday morning in the Sierra Nevada, closing highways, schools and ski resorts around Lake Tahoe.

Squaw Valley USA ski resort reported nearly 4 feet of new snow overnight at an elevation of 8,200 feet and 2.5 feet of new snow at 6,200 feet.

The Tahoe-area resort has reported more than 50 feet of snowfall for the season, only the third time since 1970 that it has hit that mark.

Northstar-at-Tahoe is reporting its snowiest winter in 25 years, with more than 42 feet of snow.

Water officials are hailing a series of powerful March storms, saying they ensure healthy summer water supplies for Nevada and California residents, farmers and businesses depending on the Sierra snowpack.
