STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – The Yampa River is finally expected to officially open for tubing this year.

The river has been closed to tubing enthusiasts this summer because of high waters due to late snow runoffs. It has finally slowed to a point where it can open Monday.

Backdoor Sports owner Peter Van De Carr tells Steamboat Today the Yampa’s gradual decline means it’s finally time for him to go from renting out rafts and kayaks to renting out inner tubes.
