After doing my research, I decided the family (two middle-aged parents, two teens) would enjoy a little exicitement on the Kicking Horse river. That was, until I unintentionally saw the news articles about the rare deaths that have occured on Kicking Horse raft trips. Also noted in a news article was it's not unusual for rafts to flip on the Kicking Horse.
I've been dumped out of a raft once already, and don't want to go through that again. But I don't want to float in a bathtub either.
I don't find death reports for the Kananaskis or Sunwapta rivers. Can someone please suggest a river rafting trip that tops out at level III? The deaths on the Kicking Horse occurred earlier in the summer; we'll be there the third week of August, if that makes a difference.
