If you’ve always wanted to go on a Colorado River rafting trip, 2019 is the year to do it. The snow pack in the Upper Colorado River Basin was the highest in March it’s been in seven years, about 137.9 percent over depths measured in March 2013. The early spring snow pack, combined with seasonal rain, leads to great river rafting.

 

“Thanks to an active El Niño year, I think we can safely predict an above-average, possibly even record whitewater year and a robust spring runoff from all the snow the Rockies have received. If spring temperatures are normal or cooler than average, the mountains will preserve a lot of this massive snow pack moisture until normal run-off time in May through mid-June. If the spring is wet, then it will be an epic high water year. If it’s dry, I’m confident that it will at least be average and average is awesome!” said Brandon Lake, CMO, Western River Expeditions.

 

High water for the rafting season means greater flexibility to match rafting experiences with the levels of white water.

 

For a guided, perfectly planned Colorado River rafting trip, Western River Expeditions offers its four-day Cataract Canyon trip, mixing rapid rafting with off-river hikes to Native American ruins. The trip covers 100 miles of river and starts at $1,570 per person.
