I would have to say Kevin Fisher landed pretty flat to but I must have hit a patch of greenish water. You could hear the boom, it was a serious impact. Should have leaned forward more I guess, but did not really take a stroke even.

Have you ever canned it off a big booter when snowboarding and landed directly on your ass? The shock can sort of travel into your innerds, I got the wind knocked out of me and was coughing to get my breath. Felt alright after a minute or two.

NHINDS - yeah, definitely know the feeling you describe. I landed completely flat from a 20 foot seal lauch on to total green water. It was a shocking feeling, some white light in the brain, but thankfully I don't think I got too much shorter....

That drop looks to have a serious auto-boof lip, tricky to not boof, but easy to pitch over if you get too aggressive trying to get the bow down.

How long does slater run, any thoughts on if it will still have water towards the end of May?

Start watching in April. The hitch might be whether the road is clear all the way up.

You definitely want at least 300 cfs, preferrably 500. I think we did it about the middle of May. The road was clear for another mile or so past the the put in, not much. Here's last year's runoff:

Give us a call at paddlinglife.net when you come. We love to take time off and go boating on the goods with folks. A team can be assembled in the matter of minutes. That thing is a gem and the rest of the creek is serious as well, just lean a little forward, but not too forward. It is shallow as hell in there, far left and all right. Mayo, Kevin Thompson, Kevin Fisher, Joe Carberry, Piano, and a few others have labored to clear the wood. Another chainsaw, then runable creek in Routt. How many does that make? Fish, Upper Fish, Mad Creek, The Upper Elk, Slater Creek, King Solomon Creek, and a few others. Man that is a lot of canola oil in the river!

Mario wouldn't even have been done puttin' on his singlet before Zak ran the shiat and took Kelly, Jessica and Lisa back to the truck...

But the name was fitting.

Local boater and newspaper writer, Dave Shively, just dropped a story on Slater.
