There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors in the Crested Butte area. One you may not have thought of is whitewater rafting. The rafting season varies depending on how much snow we get and how long it takes to melt, but generally starts in mid-May and runs through mid-July (or later). There are two companies who offer a variety of options on the Taylor and Gunnison Rivers. You can read more about them below.
If you end up going rafting, let me know what you think and maybe even share a photo with me. Have fun!

Blue skies, high mountains, and crystal clear trout-filled waters make this spot the ideal getaway. The resort is conveniently situated in between Gunnison and Crested Butte.
