Paddling Idaho’s Big Wood River

Paddling Idaho’s Big Wood River

While paddling in summer may be the more popular option for the average paddler, it could be argued that winter is the most scenic time to paddle. Sure, it’s cold, but there’s no denying the fact that paddling alongside snow-covered riverbanks is an unforgettable experience.

In this video, we see paddler Danny Walton in a drysuit on the Big Wood River in Ketchum, Idaho. The icy river meanders alongside a snow-covered mountain and provides breathtaking views along the way. While it may not be for everyone, SUP in the snow may just be one of the best ways to experience nature in its most magnificent form.
