TRUCKEE, Calif. — While clearing the roads last week, California Highway Patrol officers discovered something odd buried underneath the snow. 

A snow-removal vehicle discovered a Jeep buried underneath nearly 20 feet of snow, NewsNet5 reported

The department posted a photo of the back of the vehicle on their Facebook page. 

An official told Jalopnik that the jeep had probably been in the snow for the majority of winter. The official said the Jeep is not blocking the roadway, so there’s no rush to move it. 

 

Oh the things we find playing hide and seek in the winter! Be ready for traffic delays on SR-89 as Squaw Valley is set to host the FIS Ski World Cup Friday and Saturday.
