Alpine Quest Sports and Alpine Kayak School is Colorado's spot for for climbing, kayaking, telemark skiing, backcountry gear & kayak instruction. We are located in the Vail Valley right in the center of Colorado's Rockies. We literally have year round kayaking in this area (if you can deal with the cold water in the winter). Conveniently located on the I-70 corridor, we are in the middle of it all!!
Alpine Kayak has been teaching kayaking since 1989. We have one of Colorado's largest kayak schools and pride ourselves on the quality of instruction and all around experience we can provide to our guests. All of Alpine Kayak's instructors are First Aid/ CPR Certified, have Swiftwater Rescue & are certified by the American Canoe Association (ACA) to teach. We recruit instructors from all across the United States to make sure that we have instructors that will not only teach you the skills, but assure that you will have a great time while learning!!
Classes are offered for all ages and ability levels and are taught on local rivers, lakes and pools. We have access to over 100 miles of the Colorado, Eagle & Roaring Fork Rivers. This allows us to cater our programs to make sure that you have the right learning environment whether it is May, September or anywhere in between. Water levels are constant on the Colorado River year round so during a record runoff or a drought year we can offer classes on a great stretch of river!
