Generally in the mountains the rivers peak during the May thaw. This year we have an added bonus caused by recent weather conditions. When the temperatures dropped and the heavens opened up, there wasn’t anywhere for the water to go but flush downstream. This should last for a few weeks, so get your paddles out and call Adventures in Whitewater to reserve your spot on a raging river raft. Winter Park Lodging Company has great hot tubs to warm up in after a thrilling chilling ride down the river.
