High Water Cross Mountain Gorge
From Dan Piano:

Since I moved to Steamboat I always wondered what Cross Mountain would be like at high water. This year I went to find out and the answer is awesome!

After paddling in on a huge lake of water we came to the massive horizon line above the Oesterizer. We all portaged. There looks to a possible line down the center left but it’s a total crap shoot. Legend has it that Jared Johnson ran it in a play boat at 7gs.
