Kayak Parks

Anybody have updates on the kayak parks in Colorado. Such as Buena Vista, Vail/Avon or any others that are being updated for the season.

Thanks

I've been down to the Pueblo Park each of the last three days and was certainly kept entertained. Hole seven is still scary... it swallowed my parnter up just trying to shoot through it. Temperatures have been crazy nice.

If someday I get the proverbial wild hair and decided to drive around the country playing in parks, has anyone ever put together a description of where they are and what they're like? A book or an online guide or ... ?

Arn and Marty (Craw) fixed a small defect at the A-hole in Lyons this winter. We're in the process of raising money to build a new playhole in Lyons that will run through October 31st. Check out the Sticky at the top of the forums page regarding our fundraiser March 19th. The amount of gear that we've collected from our sponsors is incredible.....I'd typically refer to it as "off the Chain". All this will be posted in the related link soon.

JHoch00, so they did nothing over the winter to take the bite out of number 7?

They will be building 3 more features at the BV playpark this spring. I believe there is going to be a big grandopening weekend with music, beer, and video premieres. But, I can't confirm that.

The Cor. has been down to the Pueblo park and has done the messuring and survaying and should start the new work any day. The plan is to build sevens shoot longer and bring eight up taller to floud seven out a bit. They allso want to put in some wings on five and six to provintthe high flows from eatting there way around the sides like last year. All in all its a great place with water and weather.
