Epic Days at Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center

The Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center (RMOC) knows how to close a season. With the river slowing down and cool weather sweeping in, RMOC is about to throw a party open to any outdoor enthusiast wanting a few more thrills before the snow falls and the water freezes over.

Epic Days is an exciting weekend (September 2-4) designed to highlight some great adventures in the Arkansas River Valley. With instructional courses and group outings provided by RMOC’s professional staff, it’s a fun weekend for all abilities.

Learn something new, hang out with friends, and enjoy some epic days by participating in any one of the following courses or events.

Kayak Courses

  • Strokes and Balance – Gain the tools necessary to begin your whitewater career, such as outfitting and equipment and the all-important roll.
  • River Transition – Take your flatwater skills to the river and learn to maneuver around in the current.

SUP Courses

  • Strokes and Balance – Learn everything you need to know to begin having fun on a stand-up paddleboard.
  • River Transition – Take the skills you learned in Strokes and Balance and head to the river. Practice skills like peel outs, eddy turns, and ferries. Finish with a short downriver run.

In addition to kayak and SUP course, RMOC will offer group paddle trips that include a day on the Salida Town Run or through Brown’s Canyon National Monument in a whitewater kayak. There is also a group bike ride that starts at the top of Trout Creek Pass, heads around Buffalo Peaks, and into the Midland Trail System. Other activities include kayak roll sessions, riverside camping, live music, and a used gear sale.
