  • Make community announcements

In addition to the ‘casual meeting’ format of these gatherings, we will invite:

  • Manufacturers of canyoneering-specific gear to share their new designs
  • Land Managers & Rangers to present on ‘perspective’ and resource management

  • …anyone who wants to present …on anything (Flash Floods, Park Service, SAR Challenges, A History of Canyoneering, Caving-The Brother of Canyoneering, The Wet Canyons of America’s Northwest, The Skinnies of Utah’s Southeast, Grand Canyoneering, or just a great story with great pictures) .. anyone interested in presenting, give me a shout.

Store Hours

 

STORE HOURS ARE VARIABLE

As we are primarily an Adventure Sports Training Center & Outdoors School, we spend much of our time in the field. If you are in need of technical gear or advice, or have questions about our programs, please call to make sure someone's minding the store. These are the hours we try to keep: Monday-Friday 11:00am-5:00pm (though we are regularly available at other times!)
