1 Day Basic Course 7-9 hours

Meet your guide at our store in Springdale, UT at your specified time (stated in the confirmation email). If you do not have any personal equipment, your guide will outfit you with the necessary technical equipment.

Depending on the size of your group, you will either get in one of our guide vehicles or follow your guide(s) out to one of our various canyoneering areas for the day.

Your instructor will set a solid foundation to build on. Depending on how well the group absorbs the information, your instructor will be able to moderate the amount of information it is appropriate to cover in this 1 Day Course. If you have limited experience with ropes, we recommend looking at our 2 or 3 Day Courses to set you up for success in the backcountry of Zion.
