Ladies Whitewater Rafting

July 29, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Gunnison Sunset

Join us on a whitewater adventure as we raft the Upper Taylor River! The Taylor River rafting trips offer something for everyone, from mild to wild. The Taylor River is a scenic narrow river that meanders through the Taylor Canyon. We will be traveling through areas where the canyon walls rise straight up from the river banks and often there are bighorn sheep sightings along the river. If you are lucky, you may even see elk, deer, an occasional black bear or moose. We’ll be meeting at Three Rivers Resort between 8:30-8:45, the van leaves for the put-in at 9:00. The rafting portion of the trip will last approximately 2+/- hours. Afterwards we can gather for lunch on the outside deck at the Three Rivers Smokehouse.

Annual events in Crested Butte and Gunnison

Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
