Montrose now has a very modern and large white water park
All six features are in very close proximity of each other with lots of viewing seating for spectators. Now, I am not a play-boater, I only Kayak down river in an IK, but I will give my honest assessment.
First off, boaters must understand that the Uncompaghre River is a very shallow river bed, 3' to 4', and very narrow at around 20' during normal flows around 400 to 450 cfs. Feature #5 will be huge, but most others will be rather small. Features #3 & #4 are really close to each other and might create problems for crashes! But the plus is the boaters will easily be able to float or walk from one feature to another. All six features are probably within 150 yds. from beginning to end. Time will tell how they will unfold come spring with normal flows.
A river gauge some where before or shortly after the park would be nice, because as of know, no accurate gauge gives Montrose a good flow indicator!!
Pictures are attached.
