Lower West River Run 

The goal of this clinic is to provide opportunities for Class II to Class III paddlers to run the Lower West River under the guidance of an able instructor. The Lower West River in Southern Vermont runs only a few times a year – in the spring when the snow melts and one weekend in the fall due to a release from the Army Corps of Engineers’ Ball Mountain Dam. Kayaking or canoeing the Lower West is one of the classic whitewater experiences in New England.

The instructor leads a warm-up session before setting out down the river, and then sets up a river order. While the day is meant to be experiential, not instructional, students may ask guides for help on specific skills while paddling the river.
