Guide Training Program On the Rio Grande Posted On: April 25, 2017 By: Steve Miller Filed Under: Guide Training Program Tagged In: Rio Grande Guide Training Program On the Rio Grande Racecourse, New Mexico Today, on the last day of the instructional phase of our Guide Training Program (GTP), the candidates are practicing on the Racecourse stretch of the Rio Grande, near Taos, NM. On their second run, I took the following movies at three rapids: Big Rocks, Sleeping Beauty and Souse Hole. The level is 1910 cfs, and it’s been raining most of the day, with the temps in the high 40s. Brrrrr! Vince captaining through all 3 rapids. He has taken the GTP to get the training, without intending to become a guide. The other three candidates (Greg, Michael and Todd) intend to become guides, and will continue into the practice period. We look forward to seeing them join our guide corps. The GTP group and Britt, after their first run Big Rocks Rapid Sleeping Beauty Rapid Souse Hole Rapid.
