This class II-III section is ideal for families with younger children looking for Aspen summer activities, or for those who are just not sure about diving into serious whitewater rafting.

There are just enough rapids to give people a taste of easy whitewater rafting, while offering ample time to relax and take in the towering red rock cliffs above. The trip begins in the stunning Snowmass Canyon just upstream of the quaint town of Basalt.

You will navigate Class II wave trains and a few Class II+ rapids on your way through Snowmass Canyon and on past Basalt. Then, just above the take out you will raft through a fun Class III drop called The Spillway–but don’t worry, you’ll be ready for it by then! This trip is suitable for anyone over the age of 6.

What’s Included
The raft trip, shuttle, splash gear, wetsuit, snacks and lunch (when specified). Photos are not included but can be purchased online immediately after the trip!

What to Wear Rafting
We suggest wearing quick drying clothing such as non-cotton shorts and t-shirt or bathing suit. Be sure to bring waterproof sunscreen (you will be rafting at 9,000 feet where the sun is intense!), sunglasses with a retaining device, and comfortable walking shoes. We will provide you with neoprene booties, so your shoes will not be going in the river. Bring a towel and a change of clothes for the ride home.

Our shuttles will act as your mobile locker room.  Everything that is not going on the water will stay on the van!  It will be manned at all times or locked throughout your voyage to ensure your stuff will be there upon your return.  

The Middle Roaring Fork

We provide splash gear on all of our trips, and wetsuits and helmets when appropriate.
