Berkshire Whitewater with Gabe Porter Henry
Berkshire East Whitewater with Gabe Porter-Henry is an informational video about one of Berkshire East Mountain Resort's newest recreational offerings.
Porter-Henry describes how the Deerfield River evolved into a sustainable recreational industry with the advent of the Bear Swamp Generating Station. This hydroelectric facility stores about 1.7 billion gallons of water at an elevation that is nearly 800 feet above the river. It is then released in scheduled flows that suddenly turn the Deerfield into a whitewater paradise for thousands of rafters, kayakers and downriver canoeists.
Porter-Henry moves through the description of the trip sections on the river, the services offered and some reflections on his passion to deliver great recreational experiences for Berkshire Whitewater's customers.
While Berkshire East Mountain Resort has enjoyed a long and cooperative partnership with Moxie Outdoor Adventures, the resort recently acquired the Deerfield River operation from the Moxie folks and now operates as Berkshire Whitewater.
Berkshire Whitewater will retain and train many of the regional guides who have worked with Moxie over the years and it has invested now in new state of the art rafting equipment and training.

Big White Water Excitement in the Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts
The Monroe Bridge trip is full of big waves and fast whitewater rafting action! The fun starts right below the Monroe Bridge dam with Class II warm-up rapids and then leads to a stretch of bigger, Class III drops such as Devil's Odds and Landslide. Along the way our expert white water rafting guides take time to play and work the river in a surfing hole or two. Each rapid gets more exciting as the trip builds toward the final and most difficult rapids of the day, Dragons Tooth and The Terminator. These Massachusetts White Water rapids require precise maneuvering by your guide and strong paddling by each rafter. Good runs through these Class IV rapids climax an awesome day of whitewater action in the Berkshires. Click the Video box below for a cool look at this awesome trip.
