That would appear to be between 10 and 15 FEET of snow! no, stop, enough!

Well at least the drifts do. . .

5 to 10 otherwise

The snow sensor at Lake Helen (el. 8.2k) shows about 265" (scroll down page to see graph):

The visitor center is at 6.7k.

Lassen typically receives between 600-700" of snow per year:
