My cousin is coming up to Colorado this weekend and wants me to teach him how to kayak. He is staying in Boulder and I'm from the Vail area so I am not familiar with the runs in that area, especially class I-II.

Lagerman reservoir east of 63rd a few miles north of boulder. Boulder Res is hassle given need for kayak permits.

If he really is first timer then lake is best bet anyway. Takes a while to learn to paddle in straight line, forward/backward, various strokes. Let alone learning to roll.

Lagerman is a good one. 63rd north several miles past Boulder Rez to Prospect, turn right to lake. No fees, no permit, few people.

go to the deckers section of the south fork south platte.

chutes are class 3- everything above the chutes is class 1-2.

they will dig it.

We are going to float the South Platt Sunday morning from 470 to confluence if anyone wants to join. Will probably leave the 470 area around 10am.
