Save the date! Saturday, September 2nd is the Women’s Community Paddle on Fife Brook of the Deerfield River!

A Community Paddle for Women!

September 2, 2023: The community paddle for women and gender expansive folks is a social and celebratory paddle for intermediate to experience whitewater paddlers. Berkshire East, Thunder Mountain Bike Park, and Ladies All Ride are hosting women’s mountain biking events 8/31-9/2. We are joining the fun and supporting our community of women through a community paddle.

Women who would like to paddle together and participate will meet at the Fife Brook put in at 10:30 am. The community run paddle will begin at the put in at 11am and finish at the take out above or below Zoar Gap at 2:30pm.

This is not a Zoar Outdoor-led or sponsored event. All paddlers are responsible for their own selves (including: on and off water risk mitigation, shuttle, gear, etc). After the women’s community paddle, all paddlers are invited and encouraged to attend and support the women’s freeride mountain biking event, “Thunderstruck” at Thunder Mountain, to witness some awesome mountain biking, take part in epic raffles, and enjoy great live music.

These are women-focused events. All who identify as women are invited to participate.

July 22-23, 2023: Come join us for a weekend of women on whitewater. It is a great opportunity to gather, learn, celebrate, and connect. If you’re new to kayaking and curious to see what it is all about, you can chose the Zoar Outdoor Beginner or Intermediate clinic options. We also have a two day Women’s Swiftwater Rescue Clinic run by women instructors this weekend. Our amazing women instructors will not only teach the skills of whitewater, but they will create a positive atmosphere to foster learning and connections!

After paddling on Saturday, meet up at Zoar Outdoor for an evening get together for women paddlers.
