As a result of a BC Remarkable Experiences program, hosted by Kootenay Rockies Tourism and Destination BC, a Fernie-based company is sporting an innovative approach to white water adventure.

Mountain High Adventures, based in Fernie, introduced a brand new product to the adventure market last year with the unveiling of the SUPSquatch. It is the first and only SUPSquatch river tour ride in Canada.

What is a SUPSquatch? It is a giant inflatable stand-up paddleboard used to surf, paddle and ride the rapids on the Upper Elk River. The company offers two-hour guided trips for 4 to 8 people.

To see the 17-ft inflatable stand-up paddle board floating down the Elk River is an impressive sight in itself. Mountain High Adventures is proud to be a leader in taking river adventure and activity to an entirely new level.

Mountain High Adventures is based at Fernie’s Stanford Resort and they position themselves as experts in rafting and adventures in the Elk Valley.
