Colorado River raftingWhitewater Rafting around Winter Park, Colorado

The incredible snow year we have had is about to change into an incredible whitewater rafting year. Winter Park Resort received almost 400 inches of snow this ski season and we have probably gotten another 40 inches since the resort closed April 24th.  All this snow is starting to melt and we are looking at one of the best rafting season in years.

The Upper Colorado snow basin is around 200% of normal snowpack and the water in the rivers is starting to rise.  The Fraser River is already over 1000 cfs and the Upper Colorado 7000 cfs.  That is a lot of water already.

Now is the time to book your summer getaway and take a ride down the Colorado or Clear Creek Rivers.  Winter Park Lodging Company works with Adventures in Whitewater and Redtail Rafting.
