2012 Season Recap

September 24, 2012

Another great season finished. Lots of fun stuff for the guides and staff to do in the West Kootenays this fall and winter. We look forward to seeing all of our guests again next spring!

August 14, 2012

We may have just had our busiest two weeks of rafting ever! Our rafting guides Shawn and Tanner have been putting smiles on peoples faces like they’re going out of style. The hot weather has been awesome, and this has been an excellent summer in Nelson!

July 30, 2012

The forecast for the Nelson area is sunny and beautiful this week. The Slocan River is at an excellent level for rafting providing great whitewater, and the river is warm enough now that wet suits are not required. It should be a great week!

This will likely be the last weekend of rafting on the Salmo River. It’s been a great season, and wonderful to raft it well until July. The Slocan River still has high water and exciting rapids, and we’ll be running that trip until Labour Day weekend. Forecast looks awesome this week!

After a busy few days of rafting twice a day the guides managed to squeeze in a kayak run down the Salmo River Shenango Canyon last night with a bbq & beers to cap things off at dusk. What a treat. The West Kootenay Region is the greatest place to live and work. Coming up to a busy weekend of rafting both the Slocan and Salmo Rivers. This has been an excellent start to our summer season!

July 4, 2012

Finally the rain has stopped and we have sun and hot weather forecast for the Nelson area for the foreseable future. Both the Salmo and Slocan Rivers are running at excellent levels for whitewater rafting. It’s been a crazy spring with so much rain and flooding across BC, and now it’s time for an excellent summer.

June 20, 2012

We had a great weekend rafting on both the Slocan and Salmo Rivers. The Slocan has HUGE waves during high water and has been soooo much fun. The Salmo has been providing the usual excitement with continuous rapids and thrills. We should have another long season on the Salmo River as the rivers in the West Kootneay and Nelson area have been staying really high due to the cool weather and lots of rain. Sunshine coming soon!

Our first rafting trips of the season down the Salmo River Shenango canyon were a blast this past weekend. Check out our Trip Advisor page for guest reviews on past trips. www.tripadvisor.com/nelsonwhitewaterrafting.
