Well the year of 2013 was certainly an interesting one for the whitewater community here in southern BC.
An early start for our creeking season was a real treat with great levels on local runs brought on by high rains and warmer temps. The crew in the Kootenays were running our classics in early April when usually the only option is playboating. Salmo river, Slocan, Koch, and some Slocan Valley rivers were running at great levels.
Our first HTTD on Brilliant wave was a huge hit with friendly levels and a warm sunny day in May. Most of May and June hosted BIG water on the kootenay making the Big Brilliant wave washed out but Solstice and Lucky 13 were amazing options for the thrill seeker. Numerous high water creek runs were taking place on Koch Creek and little Slocan.
