The old bridge used to access the historical put-in is visible in the background.
As the rivers slowly rise here in the Vail Valley many competitors for the Teva Mountain Games are looking to pre-run courses in preparation for next weeks event. With that in mind we wanted to communicate a slight location change for the put-in for both the Bud Light Lime Down River Sprint and Maui Jim SUP Surf Sprint presented by C4 Waterman.
Please note that the Pedestrian Bridge where we previously had the start for both events was washed away in last year’s run off. The Town of Vail has yet to rebuild a new bridge and as such we have moved the put-in for both events 100 yards further upstream. The new start will be located at the end of Aspen Lane, at the “T” intersection of Booth Creek Lane near a mechanical easement. This small shift does not change the characteristics of the run.
We hope to pre-run the course and post some video early next week as the flows increase. If you are planning to pre-run the course please note that there is no parking at the put-in.
