Didn't have a chance to check the levels tonight - but the snow berm is down to ~2 feet on the Alpental side, and it looks like folks were able to access the puti-in by driving up from the Denny Creek exit (might require high-clearance/4WD - but there were vehicles there).

If you hit up FITW - earn some easy river karma by posting the cup levels you encountered on this thread.

Here right now! 100% wood free. Duck n boof changed.

Cup full, medium high... No valley, lapping up near last peak.. Maybe 3 inches below at lowest lapping.

Any car can make the bottom, 4wd with clearance can make top. Shovel n 20 minutes could make access for all.

Yeah those were probably our footprints! We must have missed you by a few minutes. Just scouting the run tho. None of us have been on it yet.

Road 100% clear from both sides... they plowed it today.

Run 100% clean and I think Duck N Boof looks easier than ever.

Double undercut all the way to drop before rootball are cleanest i've ever seen.

Good FITW year, once level drops mortals like me will have a blast. I chickened out, why is scouting FITW worse than running it? Steep...

There was that new log in that one rapid... Island?...the one above fisherman's. The center boof has a log in it. You can go in the left channel now, a center channel just to the right of the log, or right.

Yea, but that log is super not in play and visible from the top. Island Drop is the old name.

People have been calling it DuckNBoof, guess it's time for the old name to return. New left easier but less fun looking line.

Tonight it was just over the top of the cup with the gauge reading 530. Felt higher than the gauge reading when boating.

Thanks! If I'm right the rock will be covered this evening. I'm thinking warm days make it fluctuate a lot. Curious...

 yes ! this is known as diurnal pattern. most rivers in spring melt behave in the classic warming of the day rising at night dropping in morning..... Also if its hot and late in the day it could be higher up stream of where the gauge is located.
