Two days of training on the Hood River with Zach Collier, Owner/Outfitter, Northwest Rafting Company is an exceptional experience and should not be overlooked, even by the seasoned whitewater affectionado. I highly recommend this training for anyone who desires to learn running white water with an emphasis on whitewater safety.
Being new to whitewater catarafting I had trepidation of running the Hood River. As it turns out the Hood is Zach's classroom and he knows every piece of the "blackboard" and is introspective of his student's appitude for running specific sections of the Hood, ranging from Class II to +IV rapids.
My time spent on the Hood with Zach was invaluable and accelerated knowledge of running whitewater. Two days on the Hood with Zach undoubtedly reduced my trial and error approach to whitewater catarafting, providing me the skills to safely enjoy running through class +IV rapids.
It is rare to find an instructor of his caliber who loves teaching and running whitewater. Great instructors can always see through their students and take them beyond their preceived limits.
I highly recommend contacting Northwest Rafting Company to schedule a private training with Zach Collier.
