“Yep…nailed! Think the snow wall could have been 15-20 ft tall,” Steven wrote on Facebook.

Controlled avalanches were conducted in the area due to recent storms increasing the likelihood of dangerous, naturally-occurring avalanches.

Steven said he was warned about the situation and “moved his car, but never expected the snow to end up in his house.”

The snow also hit other houses in the neighborhood, but California Highway Patrol’s Truckee division said that there have been no injuries.
