Introductory Courses

New to packrafting? Our introductory course will teach you everything you need to know to safely get on the water on your own, as well as the basics of planning fun adventures. The day will be split into a classroom session, followed by a lengthy float down the Roaring Fork River as we discuss hands-on topics. If you have your own packraft, you are encouraged to bring it to familiarize yourself with your own boat. If you don’t have one, we are happy to provide one for the day.
