We're ready to ride our favorite kind of white water!

At North Creek Rafting Company (NCRC) we're excited to get on the river. The temperatures are rising, the rain is falling and the abundant white water we've skied on all winter is melting to make our favorite kind of white water

Looking at the Glen (below), located south of us in Warrensburg, it's easy to imagine an impressive spring with BIG WATER.
The Glen, 3/29/14
On Saturday March 29th, North Creek Rafting Company spent the day refreshing our wilderness CPR and first aid skills with instructors Rick Morse, Gretchen Stark and Steve Ovitt. Rick, Gretchen and Steve have worked as responders in the wilderness for many, many years. Each of them brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the refresher course. All guides who work at NCRC attended this awesome class (except the guides with updated medical training who worked on ski patrol all winter). The final exam involved a hike along North Creek on the Carol A Thomas Walking Trail. On the walk through the snow, each participant took turns acting out the role of an injured person as well as the person responsible for applying CPR and first aid.
