Two weeks to go!!

Pre-season update - we have water! With a cool spring but high groundwater, the river is on track for this time of year (currently equivalent to a mid September level). The melt is behind and will likely give us a significant run-off. It will also help ensure capacity and we expect solid (read fun!) levels throughout the summer even should it be a hot and dry one (fingers crossed). A quick run on the river yesterday saw a ton of snow still but the rushing creeks and waterfalls are in great shape. It is hard to compare this season to last as both offer extreme variations with us having no low level snow this time last year and temps tickling 30 degrees. We have been seeing elk regularly and the Canada geese are nesting along the riverbanks. We are excited and geared up for our season start up on May 1!! Happy Easter everyone! Oly, Tamara and Scout.
