The Voyagers program is for those paddlers who are capable of paddling class III whitewater, but are looking to do so with more style and finesse! This program focuses on mastering the roll and becoming completely confident in class III whitewater. We will focus on more challenging eddies and ferry moves, and begin to introduce more freestyle oriented moves, like surfing, spinning, enders, and squirts.
Specific Skills Focus
River safety and awareness; rolling in moving water; swimming in whitewater; advanced paddle strokes and boat control techniques; perfecting eddy turns; basic river rescue scenarios; surfing and freestyle; and basics of slalom racing
They Voyagers will paddle two days per week for the spring session, beginning May 6th. We will paddle the Hoback, Snake, Granite Creek, and other area rivers. The culmination of spring paddling will be a trip to the Gallatin Whitewater Festival on June 21-23 (not included in spring session fee). Please see the gear list for additional spring paddling gear.
