Not much snowpack but that should be the best possible window. There should be enough to do the park stretch with the free shuttle if Narrows is too low. It does'nt take much for either 300 or so.

I would say it is unlikely.

Not likely unless you can perfectly hit the short peak. We are on track for a year similar to 2012. Started strong and then faded, but spring is unpredictable. Know that the Virgin can oscillate and have multiple low level peaks instead of one major release. Weather has been turbulent around here and we lost a lot of snowpack in March up to 10,000 feet in the headwaters.....we had multiple weeks between 45-55 at elevation. Horrible for rivers in Utah this year.
