The Ark is free flowing from the Freemont Pass area, and the surrounding Leadville areas. I believe that these areas are doing very well with snow pack!
As for Lake Creek: They release all natural flows, which means any free flow that comes into Twin Lakes will leave into the Ark. The only thing they don't release is the water they steal from Aspen. I believe this is also true for the Clear Creek Res.
This means that Pine Creek, #'s, Narrows, and the NEW BV playpark will go off. For those who don't know: Pine Creek is actually easier above 3000CFS, and it is sooooooooooo much fun!!! Everything is a flush, except for a couple of random ledgy-holes.
And, all you need is a playboat; and all you want is a playboat, because the play is incredible
#1.5 at 3000CFS is one of the best surf waves in all of CO.
Damn...now I am all fired up, and have no place to boat.
But, let's just hope that CO doesn't have a warm spring and blow this big load prematurely...sorry I had to be the one to say it.
