The mountains of Colorado are well known for those seeking adventure. Whether its skiing, snowboarding, climbing, or white water rafting, the mountains offer many Colorado winter activities. What most people don’t know that in the spring you can ski and go white water rafting in the same day.
Arapahoe Basin Ski Area will be staying open until June. Our Idaho Springs outpost is located less than an hour away from this resort and will be offering rafting starting in early May. With all the snow we have received in May enjoy a warm day of skiing or riding in the morning on some great snow then head on down to Idaho Springs for some action packed whitewater rafting. Or take advantage of the best Arkansas River rafting as run-off peaks in late May and early June. For those seeking a mellow follow-up to the slopes, a Colorado River rafting trip can provide laid back fun in the sun.
The month of May offers you two different ways to experience the mountains; first fly down the hill on your skis or board then, surf down the valleys of the mountains on a white water raft. Most people never get to experience the mountains in two completely different ways in one day.
If you are looking for an adventure experience like none other come to Colorado and try skiing and rafting in the same day. It will be an adrenaline filled day that you will not soon forget.
