Dana ‘Mania’ Kopf

Posted July 27th, 2017 in


Dana originally hails from Pennsylvania and first started guiding in the early 90’s on the Rio Grande near Taos. He has since logged over 7,500 river miles around the world including West Virginia’s Gauley River, The Rio Futaleufu in Chile, The Grand Canyon of the Colorado, and the first and only raft descent of New Mexico’s class V Embudo Creek. Dana’s favorite river is still the world class Upper Animas river right here in Durango. When not on the river, he is busy raising two little river rats, mountain biking, or skiing.
