Grand deets end of March-beg April

Looking for someone who has done the grand in this time frame for some feedback. Temps, clothing (drysuit?) etc. What are the pros and cons of a trip this time of year vs later.

Great time to be there! But, bring cold weather gear in case of a spring front rolling through. You should see very few if any commercials. Normally nice days and cool nights.The blooms are an incredible treat. Marc

Rafted the Grand this time a couple of years ago. We had a good deal of cold weather. Snow on the top of the rim in the mornings. I would most definately have a drysuit. It was very comfortible to wear while on the water. We also had some windy days that really test you. They were always followed by easy sunny day. By the end of the trip the weather was warm and nice. Have a great time!!

The best time time of the year to go, although it can be windy. Temps are generally pretty nice but be prepared for cooler weather, especially early on in the trip.
