Beaner, why do you have to ruin my hopes and dreams of 4 grand on the Ark. I don't think it will ever be that high again there are too many places they catch is to send it to the front range. I have high hopes this year though of 2205.
I know a number of people who have done it above 4 and even 6 thousand. Personally I'm hoping it will break 4 but I don't know how realistic that is. It has been above 3 so many times in the last 10 years that I think estimates under that may be a bit low. I'm praying for a big one.
Which location is the default "peak" location. There are so many spots. Long term average is about 2500 in the gorge according to usgs data. Upper ark snowpack is a bit above average. I would say 2700 in the gorge.
