Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you go rain or shine?
Yes! The beautiful thing about Colorado is that if you don't like the current weather, wait ten minutes. We get 300 days of sunshine a year, it is very rare to have a rain shower stick around for an entire day.
2. What do we wear?
Shorts and t-shirts. Quick drying apparel is best. Swimsuits work great. Wear shoes you don't mind getting wet. Water shoes are preferred, sandals(not flip flops) work well. Hats and sunglasses are no problem as well.
3. Is it cold? Do we need wetsuits?
Wetsuits are not needed! The majority of the days a wetsuit would be way too hot of an item to wear. Where we raft, it is on average 10 degrees warmer than in the Winter Park or Grand Lake areas. Keep in mind that you will be wearing a PFD(lifevest) that adds insulation to your core.
4. When do we need to book a trip by?
As soon as you know your the exact date you can go. We have limited availabilty and it it is not uncommon for us to book up a week in advance of our trips.

Our rafts are capable of carrying 10 people plus a guide.

As with any service industry professionals, gratuity is greatly appreciated. Our guides strive very hard to make your trip safe and enjoyable for you and your whole family. If you enjoyed your ride, tip your guide!
