Improve Your Paddling Skills in 2016

Every year we make a resolution that pushes us to be a little bit better, a little bit fitter, at little bit healthier. Rafting down the many Colorado rivers is a great way to fulfill all of those resolutions in one stroke of the paddle. Make 2016 the year where you push yourself a little further, getting yourself ready to take on bigger rapids and more intense whitewater.

Paddling school for river rafting enthusiasts in Colorado

Sure, a nice float with the family down the Green River, with gorgeous scenery and a few class II rapids just big enough to get your heart going is great. But, aren’t you secretly wishing you could take on the bigger class IV-V rapids? It’s the thrill of a lifetime, but you have to be in shape, and you have to know how to handle yourself in a raft, helping to maneuver the wild waters. This requires some serious paddling skills.
