Whitewater Blog Category: Class V

Upper Animas Season is on!

We should have ideal flows on the Upper Animas for the rest of the season. Book your rafting adventure today! For those looking for an epic day of whitewater rafting Class III-V, have a look at our specialty trip the Marathon. This trip includes 24 miles of whitewater in one day!

Our famous Raft’n Rail trip combines a Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge train ride with 12 miles of whitewater on the Middle Upper Animas. The Middle Upper Animas is mostly Class III-IV with one Class IV-V.

The Upper Animas Overnight offers up the same whitewater as the Marathon with a night of camping in the pristine Weminuche Wilderness.

If you are planning on being in Durango or Telluride in August, the Rockwood Box trip is perfect for beating the hot summer sun while experiencing a deep and steep river gorge.

Upper Animas Training Trip

This Sunday we headed to the Upper Animas for a training and scouting mission. We did the Upper Animas Marathon trip from Silverton to Tacaoma (24 miles of whitewater in one day!). The river was running about 700cfs below Silverton and about 1900cfs at Tall Timber. The day was filled with sunshine, whitewater and amazing waterfalls visible from the river.

Waterfalls flowing into the river just below Silverton.

The San Juan snowpack will deliver a long Upper Animas season this year. We can’t wait to get you and your group up there for your next adventure.

Sorry Folks… Park’s Closed

It’s that time of year… time to clean and store all the gear in preparation for winter. We are all finished up for the 2016 rafting season.

And so as the Moose should’ve told us at the gate, “Sorry Folks… Park’s Closed”.

Thanks to everyone who joined us on an adventure, we you hope you left with some memorable stories to share with family and friends.

Here are some sweet photos from the season.
