beginner ii whitewater training trip-- overnight moab daily • 3 days

THIS TRIP IS CURRENTLY FULL. EMAIL IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE ON THE WAITLIST.WE HAVE ALSO ADDED A SECOND BEGINNER II TRIP IN AUGUST, WHICH YOU ARE WELCOME TO JOIN! While the beginner trip is designed to introduce you to the fun of whitewater, this trip is geared more towards techniques and skills. We will attempt to pair each beginner with a mentor who will teach skills such as reading current and choosing a route through the rapid, rowing an oar rig, guiding a ducky, and captaining a paddle boat. The mechanics of overnight river trips such as packing to fit in an oar rig, carrying your own gear on a ducky, setting up and taking down camp, choosing gear and meals will also be taught. Participation in this trip is limited by the number of mentors available and the available equipment. Beginners: You must have attended a beginner I trip or equivalent in the past 3 years. Contact me with your experience to determine equivalency. Experienced boaters are needed to make this trip go.
