Details

Tony is keeping an eye on snow levels, road and trail closures. This may cause an abrupt cancelation, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates as the date approaches. We plan to enter from the south if the roads are open. We may attempt from the North, but need to assess the water levels on the river. The fallback for this run will be Eldorado Canyon in Dayton.
