Pincher Creek The Next Step Full Day
A Class II+/III focused full day river running skills program.


The Next Step course will take you through a full day paddling progression 


The aim of this program is to continue in the development of paddling skills for participants. At this stage, we are looking to have paddlers very self-directed in performing skills in Class II whitewater and introducing basic maneuvers in straightforward Class II+/III rapids. There is a strong leadership and safety component with the goal of having participants comfortable picking lines and performing rescues in Class II whitewater.


After completing this course participants coming to the program with the correct skillset can expect to be able to paddle Class II rivers as a confident and competent team member. Able to scout, choose lines, perform basic safety and rescues. After this course paddlers can expect to know what Class II+/III whitewater is like and to have a good idea of the next steps to continue their personal paddling.
