About Nate White

Nate is a kayak instructor and one of the founding board members of the Roaring Fork Kayak Club. He is originally from Maine but has been living in Carbondale since 2015. He teaches English at Glenwood Springs High School. When he is not on the river, he loves to garden, ski, bike, and spend time with his wife and puppy. He also writes speculative science fiction, with a book coming out next year. His favorite local stretch of whitewater is the Slaughterhouse section of the Roaring Fork, as seen in his Helping Hands article about a new nonprofit dedicated to welcoming kids to kayaking.
