The Fort Smith Paddling Club wins by geography! We are located on the shores of the Slave River, along a historic portage route which led fur traders around the rapids that we now love to play in.
The Slave River Rapids are a dream for big whitewater paddlers! This is a drop pool river - in between the four main ledges, there are sections of flatwater. This means that our river has paddling opportunities for everyone, from beginner routes on flatwater to extreme grade V and VI routes.
