Come out and join NORCAL SNOWBOARDERS for White Water Rafting
SUPER SUNDAY
out on the S. Fork of the American River

CARPOOL LINK

 We'll PUT IN at Chili Bar, and do the upper and lower runs of the S Fork(21 miles). The Upper Run consists of "Meatgrinder", Racehorse Bend, Maya, and the infamous TROUBLEMAER. The Gorge run picks up at Camp Lotus, It starts with six miles of Class II - III rapids including Current Divider and Highway Rapid. When you see the Lollipop Tree (a tree shaped like a lollipop) for a third time you're about to enter the Gorge. The Gorge starts with Fowler's Rock which is a Class III+ rapid that has great potential to "wrap" or flip a boat. Following Fowler's are Upper Haystack, Satan's Cesspool (be sure to smile for the cameras again), Scissors, Bouncing Rock, Hospital Bar, and Surprise. The trip ends on Folsom Lake where we will be towed out via waverunners to Salmon Falls bridge. Once the run is complete, we'll carpool back up to Coloma to look at the pics taken by WhiteWater Photography. (Text me for pricing.)

WHAT I PROVIDE:

• CLASS 5 PFD's

• Paddles

Come on out and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the South Fork of the American, and be prepared to have LOTS OF FUN in the Coloma sun. Just bring yourself and big smile!
