Colorado Whitewater (CW) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that promotes the sport of whitewater kayaking in the Rocky Mountain region. We introduce new kayakers to whitewater, teach paddling techniques, promote and teach whitewater safety, and support racing and freestyle kayak competitions.
In addition, our mission is to inform the public about river access, conservation, and other general issues concerning rivers and wilderness, while working to resolve problems related to those issues.
