This was my fourth trip with Alpine. This time I had along a very timid/non-athletic friend, her fairly adventurous friend and my adrenaline junkie boyfriend. We ran the middle and lower canyons, since I find no excitement in doing the upper and being cold while doing the rest. Did I mention it was cold?
May long 2014: 10C with 5 mm of rain.
Luckily, I provided much entertainment to the crew as we managed to double layer me in my own wetsuit, then one of theirs overtop. Wetsuit sizing was a concern for my group (ranging in height from 5'1" to 6'3") but everybody managed to get something that fit.
Our guide was really funny and handled the rapids well. It was just the right combination of excitement on some smaller stuff and the feeling that you aren't going to die on the bigger stuff. Actually... our guide was a bit of an antagonist, which made for some laughs.
My only whining moment is if you need to go to the washroom between the middle and lower canyons, there really isn't anywhere to go; I hope you're not shy.
As always, it was a fantastic trip with good equipment (well maintained), knowledgeable guides, and snacks to keep everybody's blood sugar up to keep them happy :D
