There is no best time (it's all great!), just different types of trips. The
rivers we run are fed by snow run-off. As the weather warms, the rivers rise. Only Mother Nature controls the rate that this occurs and how
long it lasts. Each
year is different but a typical season starts in late
April with colder temperatures & lower water; then
in mid to late May the weather warms up, the levels get
high and remain high through mid-June. The levels begin
to drop then and July & early August are perfect for
children and those who prefer a little less challenge
while still getting very wet!
When you call us, we'll advise you of current conditions and help you decide the experience you're looking for and the best time to achieve it.

certain types of trips.

Most trips will require you to paddle.
We'll show you how to properly hold and use your paddle before we go.

wear COTTON on

wicks away body heat and leaves you colder than wearing
fleece, nylon, or polypropylene.

under your wetsuit if the weather is chilly.
Nylon windbreakers stop the wind and are great
