The snow mountain that towered over Barracks Road Shopping Center for several months last winter has re-appeared. Although, the snow mountain is in a much smaller form for now.
The notorious Mount Chipotle or Mount Barracks is back.
Snow plows cleared the Barracks Road parking lot after around 3" of snow fell in the Charlottesville area on Thursday. As a result, the snow was piled up.
Locals say the mountain is nothing compared to last year's snow pile.
"Compared to last year, this one this is nothing. Last year's was almost like 17 feet I think, and this is like four feet. It's a huge difference," said Nancy Valencia.
