We've been asked many times, what is the altitude in #VirginiaCity?

Virginia City sits at 6,280 feet at C Street. Fun fact, It’s the same level as the water in Lake Tahoe! 💦

Another interesting factoid… that elevation is also equivalent to the tallest mountain in the Northeast-Mt. Washington, New Hampshire 6,288’

Traveling from Harrahs on Lake Tahoe to Virginia city, you reach 11000ft before dropping down to 6000ft, Have a drink in Bucket of Blood ho ho xx

Went there many times as a teenager.

We enjoyed our visits here.

Love Virginia City

Only been there one time & was fascinating❤️

What a fun place to spend the day!

Loved it!!!

Hi, Everyone having fun yet!

The altitude of the heavens! ⛰❤️

I can tell you exactly what the altitude is. It makes my ears pop 5 time’s coming up the grade! Hey. I’m from 146 ft above sea level! 🤣😝👍

Download the “altitude” app, it’s approximately 4800 feet, I think.

Thank you for sharing this!

About 7200 feet roughly,

6125 I'm a little off with 7200 feet.

Which is why the water siphon from Marlette Lake still works.

My Great-great Grandfather's grave in VC. I hope to be there in the spring to tend his monument.

And the base at Mt Rose

Wow, oh my!

Take a step back in time to this day, January 30, 1916, when C Street was blanketed in snow. 🧐

Winters were tough, but nothing compared to the miners that called Virginia City home.

Thanks, KW Holt for sharing.

Enjoied visiting Virginia City....! Here in Norway we remember this old mining place from the TV.-series : Bonanza...!

The day global warming started!!! LOL 😂

I went with my family here when I was a kid in the 70's. Then my husband and I went during our honeymoon nearly 23yrs ago. Would love to go back again! Such a beautiful little city! Lots to do, for such a little place!

It hasn’t been that long, that we had good storms, specially since we have Spring skiing, best Spring skiing is Park City. It is great for Spring skiing.

Does anyone know who took the picture? My Grandmother, Hattie Bennett, took lots of pictures of the mining towns she and my Grandfather,Jesse Bennett, lived in. She took the pics of Bodie during the fire and of the snow there She also lived in Silver City and lead the movement to pave it's streets. She was head school teacher in a lot of those towns and the writing reminds me of hers!

I used to 'celebrate' my birthday there with Kami & Nick when the Camel Races came to V. City around Sept. 12th.. fun memories!

I went to VC with my family. Was a nice vacation.It was in June.

I remember that year! But I was still a kid.🤣😅😂

And we are so spoiled with our insulated homes, central heating and air conditioning, electricity.. when it all works!

Thank You For Your Picture Of The 1916 Snow ! I’m Glad I Haven’t Seen One Like That !

And the kids STILL went to school 😇

Glad I wasn't here in 1916.

Been to Virginia City quiet a few times but, never with this much snow. Bad enough with just a little snow and A LOT of wind. Winds cuts right thru you.

WOW THATS AMAZING. WENT THERE MANY TIMES. HAVE FAMILY IN MINDEN.

Loved visiting. It is one of my favorite places. It was snowing last time I was there. Going back down the mountain to Carson Citt was a trill into itself.

Wow 😁 we absolutely love living here and if ya don't like the snow ya probably don't want to live in our beautiful little town 😁 thank you for posting such great pictures. We love the history here 😀

Blanket that's the double whammy. I'm from Michigan now in Reno. I like to hang out late at night VC, after the shows. Having the town to myself and not a soul around. So calming.

It’s been many years since I visited Virginia City, love the beautiful city!🥰

I visited Virginia City and I loved walking on the streets.

Every time I travel to Tahoe, I always go to Virginia City. Years ago there was a slot machine I like to play where you can win a shot of whiskey, and I won about 20 shots, I was passing the shots out to people and you can win a bottle of whiskey, I won 2 bottles. Great town of the west and it's history.

I love Virginia City. My Mom was 18 days old when this picture was taken.

Kinda looks like this year of our Public Works and NDOT didn’t kick some but!

My grandson and I have been there when he was 16 years old and he was very interested in the town I been there a lot over the years when we go to Lake Tahoe

Yo conoci este bonito lugar en 2013...saludos desde Chile.

Lots of fun memories in Virginia City, a place I always enjoy.
