Clear Creek Peak!

Been up to the high country recently? Snow is finally stacking up! Dare I say we might be in for an average CC peak?

Good to hear from you, Dan! I'll definitely be satisfied with average this year and hope I can get on the water with you when you're not changing diapers!

Anyone know if they are doing a "Creek at the Peak" again this year. Last year was really fun. But also very low.

I can't remember when I last felt so thrilled to nearly achieve mediocrity late in the game.

I built a correlation between snowpack and peak flow for clear creek many moons ago. According to the Foley Clear Creek O' Matic Peak Flow Calculator, peak flow will be 769.3 cfs.

Loving the fact that clear creek will run this year.

I hit the GOALS facebook page with this link. Hopefully they'll put up a post on the race soon! I'm calling 812 on May 27.

Bad News... sounds like the Creek at the Peak race won't go down this year.

There already is a Black Rock race that's in the same vein of the Gnarrwos race though a slightly different format. Though, maybe someone will put on this sprint as an unofficial race as we surely do like to race!
