Diverse is how we would best describe the paddling in this mountain/prairie province. In the west of the province runs are characterized by beautiful backdrops, continuous rivers and cold water. Everything from mellow multi day floats in national parks to hairy class V creeking is available in the west. As you move further east the gradient drops but there are still plentiful paddling options for those looking to float mellow rivers in really unique surroundings. It is a huge province so don't neglect to look north and south too. A very worthwhile paddling destination in it's own right.

Sundre

9km to Blue Bridge
Panther River - The Panther is a tributary of the Red Deer River, and can be run as a beginner-level river when the Red Deer is too high. Generally run when the Red Deer is between 90 - 140 cms, at which point the Panther is roughly at 20 cms. It is a relatively narrow and low volume stream with many good eddies, and it is narrow enough to permit throw-bag and other rescue scenario practice. The Panther flows quite quickly, but only has one rapid of note. The S-bend comes about 1/3 of the way into the run at a trailer campsite which has boulders on the banks. The major danger on the Panther is wood. It would be wise to scout the full run for wood before paddling with beginners on the river.
