The Fort Smith Paddling Club


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.


Photo Contest Winners!

Congratulations to all the winners!

The winning photo is by Pierre Emmanuel Chaillon, and his image of a perfect moment at the Slave River Paddlefest of paddler, Jon Blyth,  with soaring pelicans in the background. 

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest!
