It's December, wow! Another great paddling year is almost finished. Time to start thinking about the start of the next season… It always begins on New Years Day with Shoshone. Warm, cold, sun, clouds or pounding snow the crew will be there at high noon ready to paddle! All are welcome. Last year we had a record 130+ people show up. I'd love to beat that this year so bring a friend and lets bring the New Year in right by being on the river!
Bring your warm gear, dry suits, gloves & pogies, skull caps and wool socks.
Here is an article I wrote with some tips I've gathered in all the years of winter paddling in Colorado. Lessons of an Ice Boofer
Who is going to make it this year?
Lets plan to leave for the first lap at 12:00 noon at Grizzly Creek (maybe arrive a little early to get changed and load boats) and be leaving the parking lot for the first Shoshone lap ASAP. I'd love to do another group photo at the putin at 12:15 so If we can all gather below the ramp at the waters edge that would be amazing. If you have a shuttle driver bring them along. We often do multiple laps!
Here is a Facebook page to share stoke, carpools, clothing questions and above all pictures from this year and past years. https://www.facebook.com/ShoshoneNYD
See you all soon, it cant be anything short of amazing!
