Win Your Spot for 2015 World Cup/Championship Team!

July 2, 2014 -- Skykomish River, Washington

by Marin Millar

The US Western Team Trials returns to the famous Skykomish river in Washington on October 17-19. This is going to be a fabulous course! The Skykomish river is a classic Northwest pool-drop river. The classic course will start from below Boulder Drop to Fishermanís Rapid. It starts off with 3 Class III rapids, with nice pools in between. Then thereís about 2-3 minutes of Class I-II, until the Class III Railroad bridge rapid and then another few minutes of Class I-II before finishing off in the Class III Fishermanís Rapid.

There will be 2 sprint races, on Saturday and Sunday respectively. The first will be in Fishermanís Rapid, and the second will be above Big Eddy. The Skykomish is a naturally flowing river, water levels can vary, but donít worry! We have a contingency plan in case water levels donít cooperate. Will be posting video and more info soon, but feel free to contact me with any questions.
