With predictions for a much longer, fun-filled 2005 whitewater rafting season, California’s exploding Sierra snowpack has river rafters in a state of delirious excitement.

Statewide, the snowpack is 202% of normal with plenty of this El Nino-like winter––and possibly much more snow--yet to come! In the southern Sierra, which feeds popular whitewater rafting rivers including the Kern, Kaweah and Kings, the snowpack is already at 251% of normal and should provide an absolutely fabulous whitewater season.

"The last time we had a giant snowpack like this, was in 1995," says William McGinnis, founder of Whitewater Voyages.com, California’s largest whitewater rafting company. "Rafting runs on the Kern River including the Upper Kern and Forks of the Kern as well as the Kings River were high, exciting and tons of fun clear through September."
