As remote work and telecommuting become the new normal, there is a list of benefits and set backs that have surfaced in the wake […]

“The Rafting Outlook for Summer 2019” – Ark Valley Voice Interviews Mark Hammer and Other Rafting Professionals
The Adventure Company’s owner, Mark Hammer, was interviewed by Henry John DeKam at The Ark Valley Voice last week about the 2019 rafting season’s predicted water flows. A topic we discussed in detail in three previous blog posts last month. Last summer, a near season-long drought wreaked havoc on the rafting industry in and around […]
Colorado’s wild fluctuations in snowfall and weather drastically impact the eventual snowmelt and runoff. Therefore, an accurate prediction is often difficult, until now. The total snow depth and its Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) are outstanding and well above average. Rivers across the state currently tend to be anywhere from 20% to 50% above average. Located […]
We have seen an amazing amount of snow this winter! Its impact is going to be recognizable for the entire rafting season. Expect big splashes, fast water and incredible memories through to September, but we are watching April very carefully. Most people are surprised at how important the month of April is to Colorado whitewater […]
In Colorado, there is nothing very consistent about our rivers’ water levels. So, those interested in whitewater rafting have to adjust to a wide range of flows. Rafting may feel different at a trickle compared to a flood, but this adds to the challenge and excitement. Since Colorado’s Rocky Mountains sit at such a high […]
Each winter, Colorado whitewater rafters follow the snow depth data transmitted by sensitive gauges strategically placed at key locations high up in the Rocky Mountains. With each snowfall, rafting enthusiasts like to compare the current snow depth, and the moisture contained within it known as “Snow Water Equivalent” (SWE), against previous seasons. This helps us […]
Since 2013 the water flowing through beautiful Browns Canyon National Monument has been listed by the The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission as Gold Medal Trout Waters. It took more than twenty years to reach that status and in that time the Arkansas River has undergone a big transformation. Metal pollution from nearby mining areas impacted the […]
. Time flies when you’re busy making memories on Colorado’s beautiful rivers. We find ourselves at the bittersweet end of a busy summer season with exceptional whitewater. As we enjoy some slower days at our adventure base camp, we picked out some of our favorite photos of the 2017 rafting season. We hope you enjoy […]
