Sheep and Sulphor
  Fenman -- Sep 07, 2009 11:24 pm
I go on a annual rafting trip with my friends I( no wives allowed). We usually go to Golden BC to do the kicking horse but the commute is painful and we decided to try something different. Our first guide was a bit of a pompous, when we asked him to compare Sheep Creek to another river he replied with "You don't compare rivers, they are all different" almost like he was offended by the question. The remainder of the time we had with him was a little awkward. During the first river (sulphur) we experienced minor rapids but beautiful views. The drive was a little bit of a pain because you meet the bus on one side of the town then they drive you to the other side to get suited up. I dont think they have any control over this because parking is limited at the main office and it's in the heart of a residential area.

Sheep was a different story. Views were going by way to fast and the water was raging. The rapids aren't huge but they just keep coming. The walls are very narrow and the water is shallow and quick. Johannes Zwart was our guide for the second tour and needless to say he was amazing.

I recommend this tour for anyone experienced or not for a good time. Bring some snacks if you opt for their lunch because they didnt have enough to feed everyone that paid for it (4 people showed up that i dont think were suppose to be on that tour and rather then argue with them Wild Blue Yonder fed them lunch and let them come down the river). DO NOT GO TO JASPER. Jasper has the crappiest rafting outfit i have ever seen. Bad tours and bad water. Grande Cache is a million times better than jasper.

We went in early june when the water level was the highest so your experience of the rapids could be different when the water is low.
