Idaho river rafting season is upon us and there is no better place to launch from that Stanley, Idaho. But before you hop on that raft, take a minute to become familiar with the classes of river rapids. River experts use the International Scale of Difficulty comes to ranking different types of rapids. The rankings start at a Class I and progress to a Class 6, which is almost impossible to finish and requires great skill. It is important that a person choose the right classification number that is equal to both their skill and comfort level.
