Another place is Alpenglow Mountainsports in Golden. Chris knows he's competing with companies closer to the real water so he gives you a free day on each end of your rental for travel. He's also got pretty reasonable rates and has had good equipment when I've rented from him.

Have a good trip,

Alpenglow in Golden is the way to go -- call ahead and reserve the boats or you won't be guaranteed to walk-in and go.

Free pick-up and drop-off days are killer! Big sale on gear going on right now.

Stop by and have a beer with 'em, great crew there.

thanks for the suggestions.

thanks all.

i like the alpenglow folks (got a kaya there years ago)

...but had to go with rim rock in fruita as they have a put in upstream from loma and they can even grab the boats at the cisco take out. they also rent groovers and fire rings. heck, for an extra $20, they even clean the groover!

also, they didn't need any deposit (alpenglow needs 1/2 up front)

thanks again,
mike
