Rain, Rain, Here to Stay!


Lately it’s been raining cats and black dogs here in Jackson Hole. It’s like we live in Seattle, but with more scenic mountains, no offense to any coffee drinking hipsters residing to our west.

In fact it’s been raining in Jackson Hole so much that if we weren’t already in the rafting business, we’d probably start building an ark or two, just to be on the safe side. Luckily, we’ve got the finest fleet of rafts in the business and are prepared for whatever mother nature throws at us.

Move over April as this past May was the wettest on record in the United States. It’s true May showers bring rafters delight. The rain helps to fill our rivers and turn them into fast cruising highways for your scenic floating pleasure. It’s like the rain crafts our rivers and waterways into high class performance sports cars that get 4,000 cubic feet per second to the gas tank, so to speak. Proudly made in America this ain’t your grandfather’s Snake River. True the river’s are surging and currently running high, but don’t worry when you take one of our scenic floats you’ll be riding in style, comfort, and safety and can leave the driving, er rowing to us, as you get to sit back, relax and enjoy the epic views. Everyone rides first class at Black Dog Raft Company.

Our winter snowpack may have been slightly off our usual legendary totals which feeds into our waterways, but the rain we had in May is keeping our rivers on track for what is shaping up to be another beautiful summer on the Snake.

Rain makes the flowers and rivers bloom around here. Don’t worry the sun is coming out and we’ve got plenty of room for you on one of our SCENIC floats. Yeah we just went ahead and capitalized bolded, and italicized the word SCENIC just now. It’s an old typographers trick to bring emphasis to a word, to make it stand out. It’s the least we could do to give you a small inkling of what your day is in for when you join us for a float. In other words it’ll be breathtaking, dramatic, grand, panoramic, spectacular, impressive, striking or basically SCENIC on steroids. We can’t wait to have you join us for an unforgettable float on the Snake River. Morning, noon, or afternoon we have the right trip for you. So go ahead and book a trip with us at blackdograftcompany.com.

See ya on the river.
