After a winter in Honduras, I came back to Canada with a job at Wedge Rafting working as both a safety kayker and raft guide. During the summer I worked on four different rivers. The Green, and Birkenhead being the main two early in the season, with the Lower Checkamus and Elaho-Squamish kicking in later in the season.
The nice thing about rafting in Whistler is that there are a soild amount of quality creeks and rivers close by for kayaking. The Callaghan, Lower Green, Rutherford, Soo,and the Upper Checkamus were all close enough to do some before or after work paddling. This year was also the second year of the Whistler Creek Cup which takes place on the Upper Check, the Soo, and the Callaghan. For more info on the race check out www.reelrooster.com. All and all it was a sweet summer with lots of paddling, and rafting. Look forward to doing it again next year!
