Designed to Complement the Wild Sky Guides Canyoning Swiftwater Rescue Course.

In order to succesfully implement a rescue in the canyon environment we need highly trained canyoners at all levels of the chain of rescue.

Why is Canyoning Swiftwater Rescue Important?

Canyoning, also known as “canyoneering,” has gained popularity over the last decade in the Pacific Northwest and around Europe and North America. However, it comes with inherent risks, especially in remote and rugged terrain. This partnership between Peak Rescue and Wild Sky Guides seeks to build capacity in the PNW region to respond to emergency situations that occur in canyons; in both the recreational and professional communities.
