As I sit at my desk and look out the office window I smile while gazing upon the three to four feet of snow that is still hanging around Wildwater Headquarters. I’d be lying if I said that the sight of snow doesn’t help me breathe a sigh of relief after last year's difficult drought-pocalypse.
Luckily we had the pleasure of hosting very optimistic rafting guests. We thank you for helping us by feeding off our glass-half-full mentality. We were all out there to enjoy the outdoors, to raft, sup, or kayak on the river together - to not take anything for granted. Life is too short.
Sometimes it's all about improvising. Slip n' slide games with a youth group on the Wenatchee River in late July.
This season is shaping up to be much more like the years before last, with high recorded snowpack and great precipitation averages throughout the state. We will have water!!
We’re looking forward to the potential for a Green River season, to the Skykomish River running longer than two months, and to the distant remembrance of “the low water blues”. We will have water!!
With March less than two weeks away Team Wildwater is getting really excited for the season - in our opinion April 1st can’t come soon enough!

The Winter months have been great with staff spending time working and adventuring at local ski resorts, working in various classrooms across the state, teaching high school students how to drive, fishing, hiking, boating, and vacationing. With that said, we all have the same thing on our minds - the river season ahead. We will have water!!

A fun (yet scary) comparison photo that shows what the snowpack looked like in 2015.Snowpack for 2016.
Stay tuned for our newly updated Frequent Paddler Program that we plan to announce next month. Who doesn’t love a little extra incentive to raft as many rivers as possible in the season?
