Welcome To The Northwest Whitewater Association!

NOTE: A complete "remodeling" of the Northwest Whitewater Association website is underway and we hope to debut the new look very soon. It had been anticipated that the work would have been completed by now but there is work yet to do so we've done the best we could to make the current site more useable.

Welcome to the website of the Northwest Whitewater Association. We are a whitewater rafting club based in Spokane, Washington. Our goal is to promote whitewater boating, safety, and conservation.
