Description:

Beaver creek is a fairly long run, with a mix of short class 4’s, some nice long, narrow class 3’s, and a mix of easier rapids and flatwater. The first drop is one of the hardest on the river.

Flow Information:

Low: 10 cms Ideal: 22 cms and above – lots of water, good surf waves High: none. Routinely peaks in the 40’s. Low bridges may become a hazard above this.

Season:

Mid-April to Mid May. Ice on the flats usually prevents paddling before the beginning of April. In heavy snow years, Beaver creek may run into June, and very occasionally after a big rainfall.
