Whitewater season in Colorado is generally predictable. May will bring moderate water levels, followed by peak runoff in June, and a pretty steady flow for July. By this time of year, though, runoff will have started to dwindle. For almost every other river in the state, this means that peak rafting season is over.
Now, here in Kremmling, dwindling runoff only means one thing to our staff- GORE CANYON! This is the most technical commercially rafted stretch in the United States. AKA the most fun raftable stretch available in August/September. Containing 3 MONSTER Class V rapids, 10-15 Class IV, and countless Class III, this run is nothing to scoff at. And, in my opinion, is something every whitewater enthusiast should experience at least one time.
Last year we were given a permit to take commercial trips down Gore Canyon, opening up a whole new level of whitewater for our company. Now, we have our first couple Commercial Gore Canyon trips coming up. Included in our Gore trips is a steak lunch from the Middle Park Meat Company, the most awesome whitewater experience in the state, and the very best guides available. Sound like fun? All that is required is excellent physical fitness, a serious mentality, good swimming ability, and experience rafting Class IV. All commercial guests must swim a Class 3 rapid, swim underneath the raft, and be able to enter the raft with minimal assistance. Still sound like fun? Just give us a call at 970-724-1122 to book!
