My guess is you'll be good. Only beta I really have is for gore which is mostly clear, except in the steepest constricted areas. I figure if the whole flatwater paddle in and paddle from kirsch to t/o is clear, pumphouse should be ok.

You can still cross country ski on it. Unless you don't mind a portage or several you might want to wait.

Seriously, it's not open. I'm hoping to do State Bridge to Catamount this weekend but I anticipate a few portages at a minimum and it always opens up before Pump to Rancho.
