    LANSING, WV, March 10, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- What's being called one of the worst winters on record could result in one of the best rafting seasons in decades for visitors to West Virginia's New River Gorge. Whitewater rafting experts at River Expeditions, one of the region's premier rafting guide outfits, are predicting record high water, resulting in an unforgettable rafting experience. Adventure enthusiasts can experience the raging waters caused by this year's spring thaw on the New River when River Expeditions opens its season April 10.

"True adventure lovers won't want to miss out on the spring season this year," said Heather Johnson. "The higher water drives powerful tides, waves and holes, taking what's already an exciting rafting experience to a whole new level. We haven't seen this kind of snowfall for many years, and we're eager to encounter this one-of-a-kind rafting adventure with our guests."
