Hook up with this local Steamboat Crew (LateNightJonser). Paddled Cross with them a couple of weeks ago. Great, fun, crew to roll with! Cross is a BLAST!!! I LOVED IT! We put on when the flow was 1575 cfs, and it was at 1870 cfs by the time we got off the river.
Here's the thread:
Cross Mountain Gorge (Yampa) ICE Report?
If you're driving from the C-Springs here, and planning on running it SUnday, I suggest driving up Saturday sometime and camp up there at the Put-In. It took me and a buddy just about 5 hours to get up there (Left late Friday Night, and Arrived at the put-in at about 2am Saturday Morning), and that's with me speeeding at 100+ mph.
