7/16/21 update: Our 2021 Kern river rafting season has concluded. Thank you for a wonderful year.
With our opening day this coming weekend, we’re excited to have our 2021 Kern river rafting season get underway. This blogpost is our annual water outlook and river flow projection.
2021 snowpack summary
The Southern Sierra’s experienced a mild winter which is reflected in our below-average snowpack. Fortunately, a single large storm in the latter part of January delivered a significant punch which contributed to the majority of this winter’s snowpack.
This season’s snowpack is a very close analog to our 2012-2013 winter, which we have taken into account in our season projections.
