The elevation in the pictures range from 2500 - 3800 ft. The majority of the snow  (depending on the weather system) tends to fall above 5000ft on Donner Pass. 

Plus the recent storm started out cold (snow at 2000 ft) but has transitioned to a warmer Pacific Storm (Atmospheric River) with tropical origins. Snow levels were above 6000 ft this morning.
