On April 17-19, Montana River Guides hosted a Swiftwater Rescue Technician course on the Blackfoot River. Much of the time was spent at Round-up Rapid, where students learned the basics of swiftwater rescue. The course was a great success with the help of volunteers Alan Bergmuller of Hamilton, Montana and Jim Biesel of Malmstrom Airforce Base. Thanks you guys for all your help! And a big thanks to the students for your enthusiastic participation. Here is a short video…enjoy.

“Whether you are a river-rookie or an experienced boater, WRI tailors their classes to what you need to learn in a fun and challenging environment. Their scenario based teaching approach creates an electric learning atmosphere where you feel like you are in actual river rescue situations. I would recommend them to anybody!”
