Sky West Airlines and Moab

by Kristl 7. January 2014 06:43
There has been a lot of Buzz in Moab over the last few months about a new company offering flights into the Moab Canyonlands Field Airport.  Well, we received the official word this morning that Sky West Airlines will be offering flights from Salt Lake City, Utah to Moab on a daily basis starting on March 2, 2014.  Here is the information from their official press release:

Customers may book flights at www.delta.com or by calling Delta reservations at 800.221.1212. Remember, the best fares are always available at www.delta.com.

This press release and additional information about SkyWest Airlines can be found at www.skywest.com.

We are excited that there will be flights from the Salt Lake City airport, which is a large "Hub" airport.  I checked the price of the flights in June, and it looks like the round-trip flight from Salt Lake City to Moab will be about $174 per person.  I found this price through Kayak.com (the Delta website was working a little slow this morning).

Remember that if you are flying in to the Moab airport, you will either need to rent a car through Enterprise (at the airport, advance reservations required) or arrange for a shuttle into Moab, as the airport is about 14 miles outside of town.  Please feel free to call me (Kristl) at 800-332-2439 for shuttle information.

“Growing, protecting and supporting America’s outfitting buisnesses”- AOA mission statement

www.americaoutdoors.org

 

 AOA is a great tool to grow an outdoor outfitters business to become bigger and greater in their field with experts from their field.  Camaraderie with friends yet competitors is a great way to excel in giving the best and greatest experience in our industry.

 

With that said, Sheri Griffith River Expeditions spent a week at the AOA Conference taking in so much information and making connections to grow and expand what we can do for our guest and their experience.

 

At the AOA trade show Arlo and Emma looked at the new and upcoming equipment from boats, life jackets, and all the new trinkets!!  Proud to say we are ahead of the curve in providing top-of-the-line equipment. There was also great information on the new Google algorithms and many other marketing tools.

 

Though the Internet is very important, we still feel providing great trips and great customer service will carrier us higher! !

Is this a vacation you want in 2014?

Our river rafting trips are about so much more than just great whitewater. But sometimes you need to just enjoy the rapids. From the splashy “riffles” to the HEART pounding waves.

Cataract Canyon: Now with NEW rapids!

by Brenda Milligan 9. December 2013 10:00

Cataract Canyon...Now with New Rapids!
Cataract Canyon rafting

September’s record breaking rains and the shrinking of Lake Powell have combined to form some new rapids in Cataract Canyon. For about 10 years, Lake Powell has been at record lows. These low lake levels have allowed the Mighty Colorado River to reclaim some of its former rapids. This has given us the chance to run 5 “new” rapids including the very fun and almost mile long rapid of Water Hole.

Our operations manager, Brenda, was able to squeeze in a Cataract Canyon trip before the government shutdown during the last week of September, and she reported lots of new debris flows from the recent rains.


Cataract Canyon Booking PageOne of these mudslides created a brand new rapid! Here is Brenda’s description of the new unnamed rapid: “A brand new rockslide has come from the right-side of the canyon to narrow the channel below Water Hole Canyon. At the low water level I ran it at it is was not huge maybe a class 3. The start of the rapid has a classic “V” into some fun splashy waves. If you break through the “V” to the left there is a runnable hole. The hole is little smaller than the Little Delores hole on Westwater Canyon. This should be a really fun rapid at higher flows.

YEAH new RAPIDS!"

Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park Information

Canyonlands National Park covers a vast area of rock wilderness in southeast Utah, centered on the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers. Over millions of years, the rivers and their small tributaries have carved the flat sandstone rock layers into many amazing forms with a wide range of colors. The 530 square miles of the park contain countless canyons, arches, spires, buttes, mesas and a myriad of other spectacular rock formations.

“SGE is a great example of “you get what you pay for”; yes, they are a little pricier than some others, but their trips are well planned, their staff is professional and helpful, the experience can’t be truly described. You will not be disappointed.”
