Also 2019 runoff is expected to be especially high, if you are not familiar with a river and its levels refer to AW, Riverbrain, or a local guidebook. CW encourages everyone to choose safety over adventure by finding a group to provide instruction, never boating alone, taking a safety class, and staying within your experience and comfort zone.
Colorado Whitewater offers a variety of kayaking classes for beginners, intermediate, women only, and even kids.
Our classes are taught by volunteer instructors, who are certified by the American Canoe Association (ACA). ACA-certification is the national standard for professional kayak instructors. We charge a fee for each class, which is used to pay for expenses such as class costs, instructor certification fees, and liability insurance.

2019 Open Pool Sessions
You can also come to our open pool sessions at Meyer's Pool to practice and tune up your roll, brace, tricks, and other skills for the upcoming season on your own without instruction. The pool will be open for kayaking practice from 1:00 - 5:00 PM Sundays, starting January 6, 2019 through April 28, 2019. We will post dates on the main calendar if we learn the pool will be closed.
There are other open pools in the area as well. Please always check the related website or call to verify that the session is still available!
Rates and dates may change at any time.
Refunds: Effective March 1, 2019, we will not be offering refunds for our pool instruction classes. We may be able to accommodate transferring your registration to another class. Please contact contact the Instruction Coordinator with questions.
