Blue River

The Blue River is no longer running for this season. Due to lowered water levels earlier in the season, the Blue River ran its last trips the weekend of 7/13/24

Is Whitewater Rafting Safe?

There are inherent risks with any outdoor activity, including rafting, but guest safety is our top priority on all trips. Since 1998, AVA Rafting has been leading trips on Colorado’s rivers, with our guides as the backbone of our Colorado rafting experiences. Our guides undergo rigorous training before leading your trip and are required to complete triple the amount of training required by the state of Colorado for commercial raft guides.
AVA additionally takes extra precautions when some of our rivers hit higher water levels to ensure your group’s safety is our top priority. We may raise age minimums or cancel certain trips to make sure everyone stays safe on the water. Be sure to email, chat, or text our adventure specialists if you have any questions about what is best suitable for your family this summer in Colorado!

Glossary of Terms

The calculation for CFS is river width x depth x speed (flow and gradient). Each river has a number of sections where readings for the CFS are taken, and 1 section of a river may have a different CFS than another section of the same river. Every river is different, so what may be a high CFS on one river might be completely normal on another. Check out the latest CFS for Colorado’s Rivers, as well as a whether it’s running low, high or runnable, on Mountain Buzz.

Snowpack is the measurement of snow that is compared over previous years. Many of Colorado’s rivers rely on the winter’s snow for water, which is why we talk about snowpack pretty often when we are talking about water levels. Check out Colorado’s snowpack on from the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The steepness of the river bed. Expressed in feet/mile.

Water that is circulating over top of itself. Can often result in holes and breaking waves.

Water flowing over a rock or other obstruction that creates a void that circulates water rather than allowing it to flow downstream.

Water that is flowing over an obstruction that leads to breaking waves. Rapids are typically formed by rocks below the surface of the water.

Sections of still water next to shore that are used by raft guides to pull over and take breaks.
