Welcome to Bozeman

kootenaicreekBozeman Montana is located two hours northwest of Yellowstone National Park and contains some of the best whitewater in the state. The most commonly run rivers are The Gallatin, Yellowstone, and The Madison along with a plethora of excellent creeks to back up those standard runs. Theres boating for all types of paddlers here, from scenic class II floats all the way up to gnar V+ expeditions. The Gallatin is the typical “after work” run for Bozmanites as it is a 25 minute drive from the heart of town and has several stretches that range from II to IV depending on flows.

Photo by Dale Swanson Bristol Motor Speedway was not the only great racing colosseum the weekend of April 13-15 th in the Tri-Cities! # beatnightfall at NoliFest had lots of action in the 8 mile enduro style course down the Nolichucky Gorge. There were a total of 25 athletes in the inaugural event and Shane Benedict cheered from the side as the honorary sweep.  The river level was near 1,400 CFS, which was a decent medium flow for the run from Popular, NC to USA Raft Outpost near Erwin, TN (The site of NoliFest).  The GO FAST event was a mass start at the put-in and first one down to the USA Raft landing was the winner!  The real interesting part of the event was the BoaterX did not start till late in the evening at 7:00 PM, so athletes only had about an hour and a half to complete the course before the ran out of daylight.

Good morning Wenatchee Valley paddlers!!! First of all, I would like to thank all of the whitewater boat riders who have participated in the last two weeks of events.
