Late January Snowpack Update

Posted January 27, 2010 by Malina

After all the crazy weather we’ve been getting from one end of California to the next you’ve got  to be wondering what it means for California rafting in 2010!  We’re wondering too, believe you me.

As is usual for this time of year–and because the storm cycle isn’t played out yet–it’s hard to nail any predictions down.  So much can happen between now and the rafting season…..

But for now, we’re seeing lots of new snow added to the Sierra, which is always a good thing!   We’re definately in a good mood,  I can tell you that.   High water Tuloumne and Kaweah River trips, here we come!  Maybe we’ll even have an epic day or two on the South Fork of the American.   Nothing like a few thousand extra CFS to spice up Trouble Maker.  

Anyhow, the average snowpack in California is already somewhere around 100%–but it’s hard to imagine that not going up soon!  This storm cycle hasn’t played itself out yet, and there’s lots of time before Ol’ Man Winter packs up his bag for the season……
