After a concerning mid-winter, spring storms have brought the Arkansas River basin up to 107% of average snowpack! All that water is still locked in the mountains, but lots of the kayakers that will be taking advantage of snowmelt have been busy getting their thrills in the backcountry. A couple weeks back Jahvea and Coby Vidakovich, owners of Cottonwood Country Snowmobile Tours and Buffalo Joe's Whitewater Rafting, showed me what the back country has to offer not 20 miles west of downtown Buena Vista. Enjoy this "snowmoboarding" gallery. What better way to get laps on powder than with a snowmobile as your shuttle?
