2016 Festival and Race Details

The 2016 Black Canyon of the Bear Whitewater Festival will be held Saturday, April 23. We have a few changes to the format, so read carefully.


The Race: 
Our classic downriver race is back in full swing. The race this year will be managed and lead by the good folks at Rendezvous River Sports. Race check-in time will be from 9:30-10:30 and the race will begin around noon at Boo Boo. All racers will need to paddle the upper stretches of the canyon to reach the race location.

The race will be a whitewater sprint from the top of Boo Boo rapid (Class V) to the take out, approximately 2 miles of class IV/V whitewater. Racers will launch every 30 seconds from the top of Boo Boo and have one shot to make the best time.

The Race fee is $25. This will cover the prize money for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place as well as insurance. We will provide safety for racers at Boo Boo. Race fee will not cover t-shirts or beer like we have in previous years (more on that below).

The "Good Samaritan" rule is always in effect during the race. If another paddler in your field of vision is in distress, minimally, you must ask if they need assistance. If none is needed you're off the hook. If it is needed and not given, disqualification will be the result. Boaters assisting others will be refunded their entry fee. There will be no other refunds awarded (i.e. if you get to Boo Boo and decide not to race).

The Festival:

In an effort to simplify things, we are changing the after party a bit. It will still take place about 1 mile downriver from the Black Canyon take out on the Kackley Spring property managed by the Sagebrush-Steppe Land Trust (to whom we are extremely grateful). This is the same location we held the festival last year. But we will not be providing the burgers or beer. This is a BYOB party. The thing that makes this festival so cool is the grassroots nature and the community that gets behind it. So show up ready to pitch in, share what you have and partake of the goodness that is the intermountain paddling scene.. We'll still have raffle prizes and still hope to raise some money.


Stoked!
