Womens Whitewater Weekend August 7-9, 2009

Women’s Whitewater Weekend Scheduled A full weekend of whitewater rafting instruction and camping will be offered on the Clark Fork River’s Alberton Gorge August 7-9, 2009 with Montana River Guides, an Alberton Gorge-based rafting outfitter. This workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up and will be headquartered at the Alberton Gorge Ranch. Professional river guides Gena Moore and Yael Girard will provide instruction on how to read water, rig boats, basic river safety and rescue techniques, and and guiding paddle rafts and oar rigs. Students will learn rafting techniques while running the river during the day and camp at the Alberton Gorge Ranch in the evenings. There is an optional riverboard trip scheduled for Saturday evening. Moore’s guide experience includes rivers all over the United states–back east on the Potomac, Shenandoah and Cheat– all the way over to the Grand Canyon and Northern California where she worked on the Merced, Tuolome and the Kings Rivers. Girard started guiding on the Chattooga in Georgia and has worked on the Merced, Kings, and different forks of the American River. Both Moore and Girard currently work for Montana River Guides, an outfitter that offers whitewater and scenic raft, canoe, kayak and riverboard trips on the Clark Fork, Blackfoot and Bitterroot Rivers. Tuition is $250 for the weekend and includes camping, meals and equipment. No experience is necessary. To register call 406-777-4837 or 406-240-8060 for details and ask for Bernice or Gena.
