Ascent

Swiftwater

Navigate some of the world's best whitewater rivers.

The West Coast of North America is home to some of the best whitewater rivers on earth, and there is no better way to explore the backcountry than to paddle your way through it. Our courses will teach you how to recreate in moving water safely, how the river works, and how to recognize hazards and mitigate them. You will become proficient in self-rescue (if you fall in), companion rescue (if your partner falls in), and subject rescue (improvised and organized rescue response).

But, we're still updating our courses and trips for Winter 2020/2021.

At this point, we have only opened up AST 1 and AST 2 courses. Keep checking back as we update more and more stoke-fueling adventure.
