Zion Narrows trip 4.16-4.18

Anyone interested in a Zion Narrows trip the weekend of April 16-18th? If it runs and the road is clear we are hoping to leave Durango early Friday morning in time to get a permit before the office closes on Friday for a Saturday put in? Maybe a Sunday run too, or looking below at Satan's staircase/Sinawava... I've seen lots of beta but this would be our first time out there and we are looking forward to it. Has anyone heard anything about the road this year?

We are so far two from Durango looking for more folks to join in! Shuttle help always appreciated.


Here's a link to the hydrograph: NORTH FORK VIRGIN - SPRINGDALE, NR (NFVU1)

Please post if you know when the road will open or current conditions of the road.

We are planning a trip April 22-23. I hope the road is open for your trip! Last year, I think the road opened around April 22 (?) and the snow pack was much less than this year.

I'm interested in running it and could potentially meet you in Durango. Could provide/drive a car for shuttle. I have only run it one other time which was two years ago but am currently trying to arrange a trip there.

Pm or call if interested. 949 four three three 3248.

I too would be interested. I've been wanting to do that section
for a few years. Not sure about Satan's staircase, that might
be pushing it more than I need to do early season

I'd be headed from FC and could supply a shuttle vehicle.
All assuming N. Road opens and water flows are good.

Water is rising. Any of you guys still planing for the weekend of April 22-23? If the water keeps coming up i'll be there.

Anyone want to share a shuttle? Paddle together? I'd really like to get a Satan's Staircase run in also!

I just talked to the BC office in the Park last week and they said the road still had snow on it and that would need to melt and then the road would need to dry (could be some time depending on the weather).

We are looking at the 1st weekend in May to go at this point and I don't know much more than that yet. If anyone goes earlier I'd love to hear how it went. I'll post updates as I have them.

Looks like it spiked around 1100cfs today, though it's already falling fast. Hope we can get in there soon.
