Paddling in the wintertime isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking for a good excuse to suck it up and hit the water, Andy Grizzell’s Iceman Race is a must-do. Adventure #55 on our BRO Ultimate 100 list, this annual event takes place on the Saluda River in Columbia, South Carolina, every January. From slalom to downriver inner tubing and the best damn BBQ in the South, Grizzell and the Columbia paddling crew know how to have a good time. Put it on your list for next year!
