Book Now Pay Later
For 2022 Spring Rafting Trips
Since COVID came around in March of 2020 we have been constantly changing how we do business. One positive change was our “Book Now Pay Later” options. When folks were loosing jobs and unsure of travel plans when the pandemic started, we initiated the option for guests to reserve their rafting trips with $0 deposits as trips were not 100% guaranteed. We found this gave people the positivity to plan vacations and think of more “normal” times again.
As we move away from those uncertainties, we still offer a number of white water rafting trips that are still not guaranteed due to flows. Many of our rivers are free-flowing, meaning there is no dam/reservoir feeding the river flows. These free flowing river trips depend on snowpack from the winter and the rate of melt in the spring. Large snowpacks like we saw in 2016 and 2018 were ideal for these river trips, the snow lasted late into the season and springtime temperatures offered a slow melt-off.
These free flowing rivers are often sought after river trips. Maybe your guide suggested the challenging North Fork American River with it’s emerald green waters. Or you’ve been wanting to run a certain section of the North Yuba (Maytag/Goodyears Bar, Moss Canyon, Rossosco Ravine) and just haven’t caught it on the right year. Well we get it, and we get that many of you have already been on the guaranteed options like the South Fork American or Upper Klamath Rivers.
Our Book Now Pay Later payment plan is available for the following river trips:
North Fork American River
North Yuba River
East Carson River
- Class 2-2+
- 21 miles
- Min. age 4-8 (this can be a chilly trip)

As soon as flows permit, our team will be assessing this river trip as there may be significant damage/changes after the 2021 Tamarack Fire. Please contact us for these trips.
We look forward to the upcoming winter months in hopes of lots of snow in the mountains. Not only for the vitality of our rivers, but also to shred some knar!
