Hi folks,

I have a couple of days off during a stay in the States next week (from Sunday to, and including, Wednesday). I will be in the Vail area on Sunday and will fly out of Salt Lake City on Thursday morning. Here is my question:

I am a solid boater and would like to go boating on one or more of these days. Anything you guys would recommend in CO, Wyoming, Idaho?? Thing is, I need to rent all kit and I further need someone to show me around. Where will I be able to find these two things?? I would be willing to hire a guide if it's necessary or useful.

I usually prefer difficult stuff but considering I will have rented gear and probably have no idea of my companions abilities (and vice versa) I was thinking of some real class 4 runs.

I am happy for any suggestions as to places, people, shops/outfitters. Every piece of advice is highly appreciated! I have the feeling this is the right place to ask, but if you know other places to post this, please let me know.

Many thanks in advance,

Henning

Anyway you could change your SLC departure to a Boise, ID departure and back it up a day or two? You'd have no trouble finding some fun boating and plenty of people to go with.

If you are going to be in Vail, you should probably just go to Gore Canyon. It is real class IV, easy to find other boaters or at least hitch a shuttle, you can figure it out on your own if you don't find other boaters there, and most importantly, it is actually running. Check out some of the online descriptions to see if that is what you are looking for and to get directions.

Boating around Banks is iffy right now, as there's a fire just off SF Payette. Already they've shut down that stretch. Main and NF might be next. Traffic there is a nightmare.
