Veterans and Family Canyon Adventure Days


Alpine canyoning is the adventure of exploring steep narrow mountain canyons by descending them usually in the water flow.  The canyoneer uses special clothing (wet and dry suits), ropes, and techniques to hike, down-climb, and rappel, whatever obstacles are encountered.

  • The Veterans Canyon Adventure Days will be an Introductory Workshop designed to introduce adventurers to the sport of canyoning.

Each adventure day will be conducted by a local guide service.  These adventures are free to veterans registered with the Welcome Home Montrose veterans support organization.

Participants must complete a liability waiver.  Workshops will start at 8:30 AM in Ouray.  All necessary equipment will be supplied.  For complete details and to register call Greg Foy at 970-318-0989.


Participants will need to wear their "play clothes".  You will get wet!  You will be provided with a complementary helmet, harness, rappel device, and splash jacket to use for the outing.  Low top hiking shoes, trail shoes or sneakers work best. Unless you have bad ankles stay away from heavy hiking boots. Shoes must enclose your foot the entire way around.  No see-through netting, amphibian shoes, Chaco's, Tevas, Keens, etc.  No sandals or water shoes. Please make sure you have the proper footwear or you will not be able to attend the workshop.
