The Blue River starts atop Hoosier Pass on the South side of Breckenridge and works its way into Dillon Reservoir. From there the Blue River is released north and joins the Colorado River near Kremmling, Colorado. But, well upstream of the confluence are the rapids of Boulder Canyon and great fun to be had. This is what we like to call a quick hitter kind of trip, providing about an hour of on river time. Another advantage of this raft trip is that it is only minutes from Frisco, Breckenridge and Dillon and our put-in is just downstream from Silverthorne, right here in Summit County. The perfect river trip, mixing 3 miles of calm float, and 3 miles of fantastic class II-III whitewater. Put those together and that equals 6 miles of spectacular Rocky Mountain Scenery, and a short trip that covers all the bases! The Blue River is dependent on our great snowpack and is usually an early season run, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t or don’t run it late in the season, so be sure to give a reservations specialist a call for up to date status regarding Blue River water levels.
Blue River whitewater raft trips all leave from the Summit County Outpost in Frisco, CO.

From here you’ll enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive, two of the tallest peaks in North America from the deck of the Yurt. See some of the old historic patented gold mines on the property as well as possible wildlife. Fly side by side experiencing different elements of speed, distance off the ground, and terrain on each of the SIX SEPARATE ZIP LINE SECTIONS. Stop at one of the bubbling streams in the area for cold drinks and snacks. A shuttle vehicle will return you to Base Camp at the end of your tour.
