The time has finally come! Though we’ve been indulging in aerial adventures in Idaho Springs since the beginning of March, our Buena Vista outpost is about to open THIS SATURDAY! Now the question is, what trips are running? Is the zipline open? What is going to be the best whitewater at this time of the year? We’ve got all the info for your weekend excursion.
It may not be high water season yet, but this is the time of year to run the river if you want to avoid the crowds. Class III Browns Canyon, Class IV The Numbers, and Class V Pine Creek will all be running this weekend, and this is the perfect opportunity to spend some family time on the rapids before summer hits.
AVA’s Mountaintop Zipline flies high above the Arkansas River Valley nestled at the base of the towering Collegiate Peaks. With 7 lines incorporated into the mountainous surrounding area, you’ll get to enjoy everything the Rockies have to offer while soaring along the zipline.
Already been ziplining? Think there’s nothing better than mountaintop zipping? We have the perfect adventure for you, if this is the case. AVA’s newest excursion, the Granite Via Ferrata, is ready to go for those adrenaline junkies looking for an action-packed day. This introduction to mountaineering will have participants scaling the cliffside on iron rungs, trying out a free fall jump, rappelling down the granite rock face, AND ziplining… all in one afternoon! If you and your group are up for a challenge, this is the trip for you.
A Trip to Remember
If you’re serious about wanting a true Colorado adventure, our Buena Vista outpost has cabins on site as well as camping and plenty of overnight rafting trips. Head to the area the night before and sleep in a rustic miner cabin before your activity the next morning, or let AVA’s experienced guides take care of everything from setting up camp to cooking you dinner on your multi-day whitewater trip.
