June 26, 2017 Upper Salmon River Report

Wow. June has been one for the record books with HUGE whitewater! Last winter’s record breaking snowpack continues to offer us the best July water levels we have ever seen!  We are offering class II scenic trips, family fun Class III, and high adventure Class IV trips daily.   The river conditions are absolutely primo on the Upper Salmon!

 

The video below highlights our Class IV rapids on the Salmon in high flows.  Shotgun Falls and Sunbeam Dam.  Stay tuned for a family rafting video from our Class III section….

How do we do it?

I had a great conversation the other day with one of our clients. She was a professional meeting planner from Manhattan.  She had planned an amazing, once in a lifetime, destination style family reunion in the Stanley area for over 80 people.  Following their trip, as we were chatting about the day, she gave my staff a fabulous gratuity and  a great compliment.  She recognized the flawless planning, preparing and execution that went into her families private Twilight Dinner Trip. She remarked how everything was spot on transportation, rafting, food, guides, ambiance…all of it. The compliments felt good.

After thinking back on the conversation during a morning pedal,  I quickly realized I owe a moment of gratitude to my boys over at TMN Events in Boise.

TMN Corporate Events Flawless Corporate Events[/caption]rs and my education is priceless.  TMN’s level of detail and execution is ridiculous, it sets the bar. Over the years a number of my guides have joined me on the TMN team to execute some ridiculous event experiences in some very cool destinations.  They drink the Kool-Aid

TMN’s  level of customer care and awesome experience building runs deep at Sawtooth Adventure Company and Rocky Mountain River Tours. We treat each group, and every trip like an event. Whether it is a Private Dinner Trip while visiting Sun Valley or once in a lifetime adventure on the Middle Fork of the Salmon.  The planning, preparing and attention to detail works….and it shows.

Adventure awaits,  Jared
