Winter in the White Salmon Valley
Rolling along through another holiday season, the team here at Wet Planet has been making the usual New Year's resolutions: spread the knowledge of river safety and adventure to more people, travel to new and old rivers for more time on the water, and get outside to enjoy even the coldest seasons. That's why we've tweaked our annual Guide School program, incorporating world-class river trips and instruction into the program. We're getting more excited about our international adventures with an almost-full Costa Rica trip. And, finally, we've been forced to get outside during the first winter storms in the Columbia River Gorge.
|LEARN THE ART OF RAFT GUIDING: GUIDE SCHOOL 2012
Hopping in a raft and navigating whitewater is not as easy as it looks. Managing the safety of friends and family in a fast-paced dynamic setting carries a lot of responsibilities. Luckily, the rewards abound as you begin to discover the magic of river travel on your own. Learn the ins and outs of raft guiding from the experts at our 2012 Guide School on the White Salmon River, Wind River, and Klickitat Rivers. We even include a four-day rafting trip on the Owyhee (Oregon's Grand Canyon). All for less than a commercially guided multi-day trip!
E-NEWS SPECIAL : any guide school participants can bring a friend on the 4-day Owyhee trip portion of guide school for only $395 (standard price $1190)! Ask us more about it when you register for guide school.
|RAFTING IN THE TROPICS: ESCAPE WINTER WITH A COSTA RICA ADVENTURE
The onslaught of winter in the Pacific Northwest has made us think of one thing: Costa Rica. The ice storms remind us of warm rivers to raft on, the 4:30 pm sunsets make us think of lounging on a sunny beach in the late afternoon, and the cold dog walks through the snow bring thoughts of zipping over a lush canopy of trees in the warmth of a Costa Rican day. Join us for 9 days of pure adventure travel though a country where living life to the fullest is on everyone's agenda.
E-NEWS VALENTINES SPECIAL: grab the last couple of spots on our Costa Rica trip! Receive 10% off when you make a reservation for two people. Must be paid in full by Feb. 7th. Just mention this special when you call for reservations.
|BARRAGE OF WINTER FURY PARALYZES WHITE SALMON VALLEY
Last week winter arrived, and wow did it make an entrance! Over the course of a week snow and ice combined forces, falling non-stop. Just when roads were at their worst and businesses and schools forced to close, the wind picked up and dropped every ice-encrusted tree it could. Power outages lasted for days. Offices at Wet Planet were closed most of last week, while we patiently waited for the electricity to return. We're now back on the grid, and excited to continue planning a new season of exciting rafting and kayaking trips for everyone!
E-NEWS INFORMATION UPDATE: While the majority of the White Salmon Valley now has power, there are still many people who still have no power and water, and have been that way for almost a week. If you know people who need assistance, please let them know that the White Salmon Fire Department is open for both hot showers and food assistance.
