How's the Water ?

Postby petho » Sun Jun 27, 2010 1:07 pm

We are headed in to the valley July 11th for a few days. How is the snow pack? How much water will be in the valley for rafting?
Also, will Nevada Falls be flowing?

Just can't wait for the yearly trip! :D

According to the website, rafting is not yet open. The water is too high. http://www.yosemitepark.com/activities_ ... fting.aspx

Yes, Nevada fall will be flowing, in fact, it flows all year, with reduced flow in late summer-winter. With all the snow we got this spring, it will be screaming when you go.

I suggest you download and print out the Guide before you go to help you plan your visit. http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/upload/yg10-5.pdf

myyosemite dot com says rafting is open (forum won't let me post a link). I have no first hand knowledge.

Ok, the park's website needs to be updated. Good news for the original poster.

Thanks for the replies and the good info. I have never seen the MyYosemite link before so that is a great find.
Getting excited about the trip!
