We went rafting on the Colorado River on the double Shoshone Trip. We had such a great time! The staff was amazing.... From the moment they picked us up in Snowmass until they dropped us back off. They were extremely professional and safety was their number one priority. Irish was a fantastic guide! And Mike a great driver! Everything was extermely organized too! We would highly recommend this company and can't wait to go on another adventure with them!

What a tremendous trip!!! Our guide, Drew, was incredibly skilled and educated about the Shoshone rapids we were rafting. Really engaged with my 13yo daughter and 10 yo son. We rafted the rapids 3 times and Nick our driver for the day was helpful loading and unloading the raft for the trip back up the river. Drew's love of the river and his job was apparent throughout. Thanks Drew and Nick for a great afternoon making memories with my family and keeping us safe. We will most definitely be back!!!

We went on one of Blazing Adventures's rafting trips. We went on the Shoshone rapids trip, which was amazing. There's a nice mix of fast rapids and peaceful drifting. The scenery is beautiful, and anyone will enjoy the ride.
You can do this on any day, but I recommend not jumping into the water entirely if it is a colder day. You'll be fine if it's cold, as long as you don't get fully submerged.
Our guide, Mitch, was really nice and knowledgeable about rafting and the surrounding areas. Blazing Adventures will pick you up from many hotels, so it is a really easy and no stress experience. This is a must do experience for anyone visiting Aspen or Snowmass!

Mike was great a great guide. He's been doing this for over 15 years and couldn't have felt safer with my 9 and 11 year old in his raft. The guy has a wealth of information on any topic. A+

My 19 yo daughter and I did the Middle Roaring Fork Duckies half day tour and we were blown away at how much fun it was. I thought it was going to be a leisurely float down the river, but it was exciting, exhilarating and more fun overall than the level IV/V whitewater rafting trip we had taken a few days earlier. We had our own individual duckies which I feel made it more fun because we were in complete control of the whole trip. We had two wonderful guides, one leading and one trailing, but it's not the easiest to follow someone when your moving swiftly down a river, but that's what made it even more thrilling not knowing what was up ahead. We will definitely do this again when we come back in the future.
