Historically, April 1 is the peak snowpack. And that’s the time when whitewater rafters converge on Three Rivers and other rivers around the west to enjoy the seasonal thrill ride. But this year, whitewater trips will be as nonexistent as the white water itself.
Rain is forecast for later in the week. That much-needed precipitation will help to extend spring a little longer, and could even drop some snow in the high mountains, but will most likely be too late to be the drought-busting miracle that’s needed.
