Why do our guide school?
We offer a number of advantages over other guide schools.
1. We are registered and bonded as a private occupational school as required under Colorado State Law.
2. We provide accomodation as part of the cost of the course.
3. You will experience both drift boat and rafting rowing on relatively challenging waters which will prepare you for most rivers fished in Colorado.
4. At the end of the course if you are interested in becoming a guide and provided you satisfy your coaches and instructors you will have the opportunity of applying for a position at one of our 3 shops.
Here are some testimonials from our recent course.
The lodge address is 100 Frying Pan Road.
