If you’re looking for the best half-day whitewater rafting trip in Aspen/Snowmass, you don’t have to look very far. Starting just five minutes from downtown Aspen, Slaughterhouse is the signature Aspen Whitewater, Roaring Fork River run and a must-do experience for thrill seekers.

Featuring non-stop action and iconic class IV rapids like Entrance Exam, Slaughterhouse Falls (a hair-raising six-foot drop), and Hell’s Half Mile, this trip is guaranteed to give adrenaline junkies just what they’re looking for.

Slaughterhouse calls for good physical fitness, rafting experience is recommended but not required. First-timers 15 and up with an adventurous attitude and the ability to paddle hard will love this run just as much as seasoned river rats. (Must know how to swim)

Any trip can be made private and customized for your group.

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.  

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

Slaughterhouse Falls Trip Reviews

5 star ratingDon’t hesitate-book! Aspen Whitewater Rafting was amazing! A large group of us did the Slaughterhouse Falls rafting excursion and it was spectacular! The guides provide detailed safety information and proper rafting techniques. Mike, our guide, was very professional and patient with the group on our raft. He did an excellent job navigating the river. We had a blast! Thank you for an unforgettable experience AWR!
