Location: The event is at the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Salmon la Sac campground which is right at the slalom race site. Itís a perfect campground for kids and non-paddling family members, also. There is a camping fee. Hiking and Mountain biking opportunities are right there.
The whitewater slalom course is on moderate Class II rapids.
The downriver race is 4 miles long and Class II+. The sprint race will be just through the slalom course. You may participate in either or both!
Cost: Race entry fees are $25.00 per racer with a $5.00 discount to those with proof of current ACA membership. Additional race classes are $5.00 each per racer. There will be separate classes based on age, gender, and type of boat. The prizes (and everyone wins at SLS who participates!) are really cool this year; donít miss out.
Camping: The Salmon la Sac campground has many first-come, first-served sites available, but there are also sites you can reserve.
