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.

Whitewater Kayak Trips or Routes

Turner Valley

Gorge Creek to Sandy McNabb
Sheep River - A gorgeous run in a deep canyon. Lots of Class II/II+ rapids at normal water levels. Gets pretty pushy and boily as the water gets higher. The gate to access this section of river typically opens around May 15th, so you cannot paddle it before then. The rapids are made up of small ledges and wave/hole trains. there is one more significant ledge though easily scouted and has a sneak.
