19 Dec 10 - Snowfall in parts of the Sierra Nevada reached 2-5 feet through Sunday afternoon, with another 1 to 3 feet - or more - expected through Monday night.

On top of Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort, at around 11,000 feet, snow levels measured 9 feet on Sunday morning.

The all-time yearly snowfall record at the base is 139 inches, and through Sunday morning snowfall had already reached 107 inches this year.

Officials may be forced to close the mountain passes, including I-80's Donner Pass as the snow continues to pile up.

Wintry weather can also be expected in the Cascades and northern Rockies today.

Meanwhile, as much as a foot of snow will blanket higher elevations in Wyoming, Utah and Colorado through tonight.
