Deep Snowpack in the Yampa River Drainage

It’s looking like another big runoff for the free-flowing Yampa

The Yampa and White River Basins are 122% of normal as of March 1, 2017. This means we are on track for another big runoff on the Yampa River through Dinosaur National Monument. The deep snowpack will also provide high flows for the Green River after its confluence with the Yampa at Echo Park, which includes one-day tours through Split Mountain Gorge. Gates of Lodore, which is below Flaming Gorge Dam, will have good flows through September thanks to releases from the reservoir. Unplug into nature this summer on a one-day or multi-day rafting trip with Adrift Adventures.
