Toby Creek | British Columbia, Canada
This creek is a beautiful run off from the Jumbo Glacier. It is a continuous class 2-3 river that is more technical in nature. It really helps intermediates go from floating downstream at the river’s mercy to being able to propel your boat from one eddy to another and zig zag from behind one rock to another. If you are a new intermediate kayaker or stand up paddle boarder attempt this run in the late summer when the water is not as pushy. The river finishes right at the base of Panorama’s ski resort before becoming a class 5 canyon. So be sure to catch the beer eddy at the resort unless you are prepared to run committing class 5+ rapids!
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO- Prevent the Spread of Aquatic Invasive Species
It is mandatory for all watercraft to stop at road side inspection stations. Watercraft includes sailboats, motorboats, car toppers, kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards being transported in BC. Dedicated crews of inspectors check and if necessary decontaminate mussel infested boats. This approach has been taken by other jurisdictions in the Pacific Northwest, and proven to be highly effective in educating boaters on the risk of invasive mussel introduction.
