One of the reasons I was exicted about this project was because it might offer year-round playboating in Colorado, 2 hours from me.
It looks like that isn't going to happen. I am no expert, but the video tells me that the feature needs A LOT more water. Shoshone looks more fun than that "hole". Records show the Colorado at Glenwood above 3000 for about 15 weeks per year. Wouldn't it have made more sense to build features that go in the 1400-2500 range for the other 37 weeks? This data is from: USGS Surface Water data for Colorado: USGS Surface-Water Daily Statistics
Steamboat's features are fun (deep enough to loop) from 500-5000.
I guess I misunderstood the goal of this project.
