Good bye #JanuBuried…Hello #Flooduary!

In case you hadn’t noticed yet; Northern California has been receiving record breaking amounts of snow and rain! As of February 1, 2017 collectively California is at 186% snowpack! The ski resorts in and around Lake Tahoe are dealing with constant road closures, avalanches and all around just too much snow, seriously, they don’t even know where to put it! Down the hill and in the foothills reservoirs are full, rivers are swollen and we are experiencing floods, sinkholes, and power outages. But to be honest, we’re not complaining…because the upcoming Whitewater Rafting season is going to be epic!

So here we go from #JanuBuried to #Flooduary! This isn’t the first time we as a rafting company have had a situation like this, we saw similar snow-pack levels in 2011, which made for an amazing rafting season! We have already received many reservations for our raft trips this season. Be sure to contact us asap if you have a large group or are looking to get on a particular river trip.
