Gore Canyon

The time is now! We have class V (sorta) in Colorado! Gore is open and free of ice. Joey Simmons and myself routed down yesterday at somewhere around 600 cfs. Get off the couches and the slushy snow and go run some shit!!!

Great News! Are there ice shelves on the banks or is it totally clear?

icy banks

yeah there's still a lot of ice on the banks and a couple ice bridges, but none that are in the way of any lines. we could still get out and scout gore and tunnel without much struggle though

Gore is such an over rated run... I will wait for Bailey to come in.

Huh. Respectfully disagree with this statement on so many levels. I mean, I get that Bailey is a little more lush and green and warm/fuzzy, and Gore is kind of ominous and dark and windy at times. However, the stoke here is that one of these awesome runs is running, and it sure beats Meyers pool.

And, for arguments sake, Bailey never gets this fluffy. County 5: High Water Gore

Still doing my snow dance, and really not ready for spring and bulbs in the yard. Come on winter!

This is your brain on drugs.

Both are classic runs and all around exceptional.

Pics of Feb Gore run please.

Lots of water still sitting in Lake Dillon. Well over 200k acre-ft.

Interestingly enough this reservoir can help put water in both the NF South Platte and Blue River.

Augmented flows for 2015 look promising.

Know anything about the talk of flooding chatfield? I know there are a few proposals out there to triple it's size. I'm worried this would severely shorten when the north fork of the platte is running?
