Anyone from out there have a suggestion for the best runs to teach a total beginner on at these flows? Thanks for your help.

The Cemetery run on the Roaring Fork is normally a good beginner run, but with the flows so high, it might not be the best idea, a swim could last a long time. The run from Grizzly to Glenwood on the Colorado is also a good beginner run, but flows there are also high. You're best bet for a true beginner run with the current flows is going to be on the Upper Colorado from Pumphouse to State Bridge.

#1 Try above Dotsero (take out there) on the Colorado, and put in as high as you want towards Burns. Its all roadside/easy to scout and shutte. #2 Put in @ Grizzly Creek (on the Colorado) take out in Glenwood. Check out the flows first as they are obviously very high. Pumphouse as cmsummit said may be good for you too.

novice run

head up to Harvey Gap Res practice rolls. Come down to Tibbetts. The truck
rest stop just before Canyon Creek exit on e-bound I-70 from New Castle.
Float down to New Castle exit river left at the access ramp in the little park
river left. Don't float from South Canyon to Tibbets cause Dinosaur is a keeper right now.
