Winter Update  2015

Greetings to our friends and fellow Eastern Sierra enthusiasts – and a belated Happy New Year!

As we turn the page on 2014 and begin looking forward to the 2015 season in the High Sierra, it is time for our first canyon update of the year.

Locally, the headlines are dominated, as they usually are, by the winter weather which has been mostly disappointing to this point. We haven’t seen the fabled “El Nino” effect we were hoping for snowfall well below average over the Sierra Nevada thus far. It’s certainly too early to say for sure what the final tallies will be, especially with February, March & April often being very wet months, but it seems that we may be looking at conditions similar to 2014. Thankfully almost everybody made out pretty good and a lot of fun was had last year so regardless of the snow, we’re very much looking forward to summertime!

While fans of South Lake may have found last year challenging, it was actually a spectacular year for backcountry enthusiasts with early hiking access and mountain passes opening earlier than usual. Anglers found plenty of Trout fishing opportunities in the streams and other canyon lakes like Lake Sabrina & North Lake, and many others wandered into the forest in search of Wild Trout in the nearly 50 lakes within day-hiking distance. Green Lake, Treasure Lakes and Long Lake were among the favorites for backcountry anglers last season.

As we have the past few seasons, we’re running a special our opening weekend of May 15th. We will be offering a stay 2 nights, get a 3rd night free special to celebrate the start of what we expect to be another exceptional season in the high country.

We would like to invite everyone to like our Facebook page, where we regularly share the latest and greatest canyon info with weather updates, images of hiking and fishing, wildflower blooms, fall color reports and special deals.

Parchers Resort is also on Instagram where we regularly share more images from the High Country.  Follow us to share in the fun. And please share your images from our area by using #parchersresort or #bishopcreekcanyon

Stay tuned for our February update which will include the latest on our annual snowfall totals, preliminary water forecast for Bishop Creek & South Lake, and upcoming Outdoor Show dates and more.
