Nobody does whitewater river rafting in Aspen and Snowmass better than Aspen Whitewater Rafting. Owned and operated by a professional staff that has been guiding our local rivers for more than 20 years. We offer a range of personalized, fun and safe whitewater adventures. We provide exemplary customer service to all our clients, something larger companies would be hard pressed to match. Our priorities are safety and fun, and we do our best to cater to each individual’s needs in order to create the perfect Roaring fork rafting experience. We have some of the best guides in the valley (over half are class IV/V guides), new equipment, outstanding lunches, and small group sizes, yet we offer our trips at an affordable price.

Chad is an awesome guide. He makes you feel like things are scary, but always pulls through. A river raft that just floats down with no excitement is like a flat roller coaster ~ who wants that?...Chad delivers the excitement we are there for!
