I imagine all the creeks around Crested Butte will go big this year.
The Taylor is in the same situation as the Gunny Gorge- theyre releasing big now so they will have room later. Not sure how much room its going to take to contain the 170% of normal snowpack level in the basin! It will get big though, the dam keepers are saying at least 700 to 900 but there will likely be more. and yes, it is COLD!!!
There is a LOT of snow still in Crested Butte, its still winter up there and people are snowmobiling and skiing still instead of boating. Its gonna be a while but when it does they will rock! Same with Lake City area. The lower Lake Fork runs are still low but that will soon change!
