New to Denver and want some paddling buddies!!!!!!!!

Guys, awesome website you have here.
Soon Iím moving out from New Zealand to Denver, and really keen to get on some rivers and creeks around Colorado. I suspect there is a lot of rivers and runs to do, any suggestions of easier grade 4 runs near Denver?

I arrive end of April so if there is anyone in the weekends with a spare seat, I am super keen. Cheers Craig

Which EN-ZED island are you from? Fire me a PM when you get here and we'll run some after work laps on Waterton, 45 minutes from Denver... Cheers- Dan

Clear Creek and Bear Creek are both right outside of town. Can be minutes away, depending on where exactly you're at, for after work fun.

CC has two IV sections and one V section, and should run for 2-3 months after you get here (good timing, BTW!).

BC is "easy" low volume creeking--IV+/V-, but has a short window of doability. I'd expect it'll go with all the front range snow we've got, but it could be done by May. A good rain can bring it up.

When they're going, you'll have more potential partners than you can shake a stick at after work or on the weekends!

Plenty of good IV described in the thread of that title, the guidebook "Colorado Rivers and Creeks vol 2" is the bible for there here parts
plenty of people to boat with- give a call when you're here

Carter, in all these years I never realized you were a kiwi.
