The Jackson Hole Kayak Club, a non-profit whitewater kayaking program in its 13th season, is once again hosting the Wyoming Whitewater Champs in Jackson this weekend. The event is a fundraiser for the club and helps us to keep our tuition and travel costs low throughout the summer instructional season. If you are in the area, traveling through, or want to get out of town please come compete and help out this great program. The water is high on all area rivers, and the Winds are flooding. The Gros Ventre, Greys, Hoback, and Snake (@22K) are all in the area to round out the trip.
