Favorite Trips

Upper Clear Creek Half Day Rafting Trip


Nate got into the rafting industry because when he was a lift operator in Colorado, he saw a bunch of people who never had been skiing before and watching their progress over the season inspired him to try something new. He chose AVA for the training program, and after running the lake activities at a summer camp in his home state, he thought becoming a raft guide would be a great next step on the water.
