River levels are currently high! 🌊
Our family-friendly Kananaskis River Rafting Trips are running as normal as this river is dam-controlled, and we're substituting our Horseshoe Canyon trips with the fun-filled Kananaskis Surf Trips for the weekend. 'Surfing' is a fun technique where the guides to steer the rafts back into the rapids and stay riding the waves - ensuring you get extra wet and have a wild time. We highly recommend it!
A big thank you to everyone that joined us for opening weekend!
Opening Day is just one sleep away, and we can't WAIT to take you out on the river 🌊
ЗНАКОМЬТЕСЬ, Я и МОЁ МУЖСКОЕ ТРИО 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦
⠀
Вчера ночью получили фотографии с нашего экстрима. Вот такие мы смелые ребята за 5 минут до рафтинга. Я подчёркиваю ДО РАФТИНГА!!!🙈
⠀
И раз уж мы все вместе, это хороший повод познакомить с каждым:
⠀
Антон:
Хозяин! Весь семейный финансовый учёт держится исключительно на нём, не смотря на то, что Худо бедно учился в школе. Харизматичный и очень Холёный мужчина, умеет Хватать удачу за Хвост😉
⠀
Максим:
Хорошо сложён, точно знает чего от жизни Хочет, защитник всех малоХольных: муХи не обидит (в прямом смысле поймает и выпустит её за дверь), знает как паХнет пороХ в пороХовницах💥
⠀
Алексей:
Совсем ешё малюсенький Хлопчик, но сладкий и с очень Хорошим аппетитом. Немножко "Хулиган", согласно возрасту, чего мы все ему прощаем за доброе Храброе сердце и Характер с душой❤
⠀
Оксана:
Хорошенькая, Хрупкая особа. Живёт по принципу "Хочу и Хрен знает как желаемое сделать". Прекрасно научилась, когда надо, Хлопать ресницами и взлетать. Не дружит с Химией со школьных лет. Холодна к мясу и саХару.
⠀
Ну, и последнее, что нас объединяет: 
Мы все, наХоХлившись от *Холода*🤪 в Канаде Вам дружно шлём Хорошие приветы!
⠀
Эстафету приняли от ivolgaalisa и отработали "Х" по полной всей семьёй 🙌
⠀
Ну, Хто тут из нас получился самый Хот?🔥
