High water is here!

Posted on June 8, 2016

Raft Colorado’s Arkansas River

Royal Gorge Rafting.

The whitewater rafting season has arrived and high water is here! Due to Colorado’s above average snowpack, which peaked at over 200%, water levels have begun rocketing far beyond typical flows. If you are looking for an exciting, adventure-packed rafting trip with titanic waves, then high water is for you! It’s not every year that water reaches the levels we are experiencing, so a trip on Colorado’s Arkansas River this June is likely to be an epic and unforgettable rafting adventure. Prepare to get wet, crushing through towering waves twice the size of your boat!

Changing conditions

Remember that once the water surpasses a certain level, the minimum age for children on the river may increase. Additionally, some of the more advanced sections of river close and trips are moved to other sections that can continue to be rafted as the water exponentially rises. Don’t worry- those river sections only become more challenging with bigger rapids as water flow increases! Get your rafting trip booked with River Runners for the month of June as soon as possible to make sure you catch the meat of high water.
