Buena Vista is Awesome.

Just wanted to make a public declaration of my BV Envy. I worked up there this fall on the next phase of the whitewater park and spent the entire time wishing I had never moved down valley back in '98. I even had Selby out showing me property. BV kicks total ass. BV is not the problem. I am. Ever since I moved away I have become a total class II bed-wetter. Just ask JV. I could not even keep myself out of the S Bend hole on my one Numbers run for the entire season. If I moved back to BV I would have to make excuses all the time for why I am not up paddling Lake Creek every night. I can just stay safe and sound down here in Salida with the artists and playboaters. Wow, it feels better to have that off my chest....

I will have to second that one. Grew up there (with JV and Coby and a few others...) and do miss it a lot.

Yes, many things about BV are pretty damn awesome - especially if you have the JV/Cobe back country hook for the winter.

Buena Vista is awesome (period) - I just love the way you wrote that Harv... I was in Reno for the big snow in early Dec when this thread first hit the streets so I did not see it to make a comment!!!

All kiddin aside the work that Harv, the Selbys, and everyone involved amazes me every time the next "update" of the BV park happens. For the summer of 2010 it looks like 2 totally new spots and they re worked 2 of the other spots... Should make a great park even better!!

Good work boys and thanks for yet another round of new spots and updates!!!! I cant wait until run off and we see how the new park is working but until then I will just have to fill the void with pow lines in the BC.. Harv when you get done let me know lets get in some pow!!

So, hard to tell for sure from the photo, but... is there any good paddling in BV right now? Is the upper hole in?

Hey, could you guys come down here and talk some sense into the Durango City Council? We need to get our shit together and figure our "park" out.
