Montana Snowpack and its Impact on the Yellowstone River

The snowpack from the Rocky Mountains is the most important parts of a healthy river system for the American West. Our snowfall during the winter and precipitation throughout the spring provides us with full rivers, which helps with sustaining abundant trout populations, great whitewater, and water for many of our lakes and reservoirs. In addition to this, a healthy snowpack helps prevent against wildfires during the summer, and provides healthy graze to all of our animals coming off of a hard winter looking for nutrient rich grasses in the spring and throughout the summer.

“So happy we picked Flying Pig for our family rafting adventure! As promised our group of 23 started together and enjoyed a fun day on the water! Half our group did the 8 mile run and half did the 18 mile run and everyone had a great time! Shout out to our guides Garth, Steve, and Baxter for being amazing raft captains and taking care of our crazy crew!” – Kara H.


“I highly recommend. Great experience from beginning to end. This was my first ever rafting trip. They help you feel very comfortable, and ensure you have fun! Our group’s youngest member was 10, and our oldest member was 68. Everyone had a great time. So, if you are trying to decide, choose Flying Pig! Our guide was named Lene, and she is a blast. They provide water shoes if you need them. There are also changing rooms and places to store your belongings. We arrived about 30 minutes before our rafting trip began. The view down the river is beautiful. No negatives at all.” – Erin J.


“Our family of 4 did an overnight 18 mile rafting trip on the Yellowstone River. Shane was our guide and did a fantastic job making us few comfortable. He went above and beyond keeping our 10 & 12 year old boys entertained. Thanks for a great experience and memory Shane.
I would highly recommend to anyone.” – Martin R.


“This company rates excellent in my book. The scenery is amazing and the horses and guides were great. I would recommend this to any family group! Thank you Flying Pig Adventures for making this experience of our vacation truly wonderful.”
