There are no fair-weather kayakers in Vermont, at least none that paddle very much. There is no scene here, no posers, no half-hearted enthusiasts present only for the aprés party. The conditions forbid the existence of such types. While our numbers may be small, the passion of those who spend their leisure time on the creeks of Vermont is strong. For many, whitewater even determines where they live. Indeed most runs come with their own local boater – or several. The detailed information on this site is provided by these locals sharing knowledge only possible through an intimate relationship with their favorite stretch of whitewater. A big thanks to our contributors.
