May 1st Idaho snowpack report is out today:
Snow Survey Program | Idaho NRCS
Some of my favorite quotes:
“125 - 250% of average streamflow predicted across Idaho for the May - July period.”
“River runners and hard-core whitewater experts should get ready for a tsunami of a snowmelt runoff season.”
“Peak streamflows could be very high and depend on spring temperatures, consecutive hot days, non-freezing night temperatures, and if rain falls when the snow is melting.”
LHowe, Bogdan, McDannel - I may be launching on May 21st as well.
Richard, I also have a May 31st, we should have coordinated, maybe we will jump on your 30th. Anyway, I will be at the lochsa for memorial.
Raftus, you headed out?
Selway early June should be rocking!
And finally, here is the requisite video from spring break 2009:
