For cold weather trips: long underwear, a warm sweater, (fleece or wool, no cotton), a hat to cover your ears, and wool socks will all help provide an extra layer of warmth underneath the wet suit. These items still may get a little wet but will help keep you warm. Bring a towel and a change of clothes to leave in your vehicle for after the trip.
• Trip description: Whitewater trips meet at Riverside Park in Cashmere, WA. After everyone is suited up we shuttle the group to Leavenworth and raft back down to Cashmere. The trip starts in the alpine setting of Ponderosa pines and Douglas Fir in the "Bavarian Village" of Leavenworth. Marvel at how the valley becomes increasingly arid and is near desert as it reaches the Columbia River in Wenatchee, WA. Irrigation in the valley is the source of abundant water for the apple and pear orchards that line the river. You will likely see Osprey soaring overhead and nesting in the tops of trees.

Our guides can make your trip as wild or mild as you like. This type of river is characterized by what we call a drop and pool river: great rapids like "Boulder Bend", "Rock n' Roll", "Drunkards Drop", "Rodeo", and "Snow Blind". Corporate groups, families and friends come back year after year for the combination of great water, warm temperatures, and lots of sunshine.
