2008 Spring training starts
by Blair Winans
This is Brian’s first time back to training since he was a trainee himself and it hasn’t gotten any warmer. He’s obviously a little older and much wiser (he’s wearing a drysuit). We’re happy to have Brian onboard as one of two new assistant raft managers this year.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day start to spring training. We had 10″ of fresh snow and then the sun came out. The trainees all did well, only 3 out of the 10 swam this weekend. Of course we let them know there are two types of raft guides –those that have swum and those that will; personally I’m hoping to hold out till it gets a little warmer
If the winter continues we’re going to need a ladder to get over the snow banks! On the plus side, all the spring trips should run at great levels this year.
