Upper Youghin'

April 18th was the first scheduled release on the class V Upper Yough and Ohiopyle Trading Post and River Tours was out in full force.  A big thanks to Bluffton College and Tara Cassalino for booking with us.  We had 60 degrees and bluebird skies, with the gauge reading 2.3 at Sang Run.  Our stellar Upper Yough guides, Chaz, Chris, Joel, and Jeremy ran the river like there was no off-season with great lines had by all.  The steep, tight, and technical rapids of the Upper Yough definitely caused some unexpected swims, but with our safety boater Ian Wingert (who is the current Upper Yough Short Boat champion) and exceptional guide staff, all swimmers were gathered up and put back in their boats as quickly as possible.

Swimmer!


The Kickstand, Ohiopyles premier bike rental facility and Hershey ice cream parlor is now fully stocked with 32 flavors of Hershey's Ice Cream.  Whether you like Extreme Chocolate, Vanilla, Peach or anything in between, we're sure to have something to please anyone's taste buds.  We also installed a brand new, candy-apple red awning at The Kickstand, which really makes the facade look wonderful.
