6-Day Intensive Advanced Learn to Bikeraft Course
Spend two days learning basic to intermediate packrafting skills on the Animas River and then four days riding the Rim Rocker Trail and paddling the San Miguel and Dolores Rivers. Some paddling experience preferred (rafting or kayaking OK), but not necessary. You definitely need general backcountry skills, bikepacking experience and to be fit. Can you ride 20 to 30 miles on dirt roads per day with a loaded bicycle? Can you paddle 20+ miles per day. This is not the course for the faint of heart. Expect strenuous climbs and long days.
Price: $2350, includes packrafts, PFDs, helmets, paddles, all food except lunches and snacks on one-day training days, permits, glamping in canvas tents or the cabin at Scullbinder Ranch. Price does not include adult beverages.
