On the Hill Summer: Great rafting conditions on the Eagle River

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.

Today's activity: Whitewater rafting the Eagle River with Lakota Guides.

Today's weather: Very sunny, about 70 degrees with hardly any wind.

Forecast: The rest of today and tomorrow should be sunny again, say forecasters.

Conditions: The Lower Eagle River is currently running at about 1,050 cubic feet per second, down a few hundred cfs from last week, but making for great rafting conditions. Rapids like "Interstate" and "Mad Cow," between Wolcott and Eagle, are currently running at a Class III level, while in Dowd Chute on the Upper Eagle, the rapids are running at very exciting class IV conditions.
