Salmon River Guides kick off the Idaho White Water Rafting Season
While we are loving Stanley, Idaho’s cool, wet spring conditions. SAC guides have been taking advantage of Utah’s warm desert canyons. Cataract Canyon is a great way to kick it off the rafting season. Some of the largest rapids on the entire Colorado River are found deep within Cataract. Now add 30,000 cfs (cubic feet per second) of water and you have some stomping whitewater.

This week the SAC Crew will head north to join me on Sawtooth Adventure Company’s Annual Training Trip. We will run Idaho’s Salmon River of No Return at what could be very high flows. During this 6-day training course SAC guides will receive a refresher on River Rescue, Wilderness First Aid, Emergency Protocol, Area History, and all of the SAC systems. The entire week is a team building experience and an invaluable tool towards employing hard working, happy, fun, smart and safe guides for the 2009 rafting season
The season kicks off this week. Stay tuned for regular updates, announcements, and a glimpse of what its like to live, work & play in Stanley, Idaho and on Idaho’s Main Salmon River
Unlike the economy, the snow pack and weather conditions could not be better. It is going to be a great summer for rafting on the Salmon River
