Ribs & Rafting the Blue River

Rafting the Blue River

It’s a wonderful time of year to be in Colorado… the sun is shining, the rivers are rising, and the BBQ is on the grill! The 23rd Annual Frisco BBQ Challenge takes place from June 16 – 18th on Main Street in Frisco and is perfect timing for optimal rafting conditions on the Blue River. Whether you are taking a trip up from the Front Range, or you are a long-time local, you’re going to want to spend this weekend in Summit County.

Flows on the Blue River are dependent on water releases from Lake Dillon and raft-able conditions aren’t guaranteed every year. The typical season is from late May through early July and varies slightly from year to year.  We’ve had an exceptional water year in Colorado and are excited to be able to bring our guests whitewater rafting on the River for the 2016 whitewater rafting season. The Blue River 1/2 day trip offers class 3 whitewater through beautiful alpine scenery. Blue River Whitewater Rafting trips depart daily from our Frisco office at 9 am 12 pm and 3 pm.

The Blue River is the perfect moderate-level whitewater adventure for anyone in the Summit County area (Breckenridge, Frisco, Silverthorne, Copper Mountain, Keystone, Dillon) looking for the thrill of whitewater rafting while taking in the spectacular alpine scenery beneath The Eagles Nest Wilderness Area. You’ll be surroundRibs & Rafting the Blue Rivered by breathtaking mountain views while challenging the fast-running rapids through Boulder Canyon. Lots of excitement, relaxation, and fun in the sun! A great trip for rafters of all experience levels.

Rafting the River in Summit County is the perfect activity option for those attending the Frisco BBQ Challenge. Spend a few hours on the river in the morning and treat yourself to delicious BBQ in the afternoon!
