This year’s winter season is now in full effect and you have probably already booked your 2016 ski trip. If you haven’t, it isn’t too late to do so but you will not want to wait any longer, as lodging is almost booked through the season and transportation is filling just as quickly. For those of you who have already taken care of your winter plans now is the time to look to the summer. This upcoming 2016 rafting season is shaping up nicely with solid snow and cold weather during late fall and early winter providing an excellent base for spring runoff. Although rafting may be a favorite here in Colorado, it is not all that Colorado has to offer over the summer months. Here is a basic summer planning guide that, if followed, is sure to leave you remembering summer 2016 forever.
Colorado is known for its camping, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, rafting and beautiful national parks. This is where you will want to pick just a few activities that interest you and make the absolute most of them while you’re out visiting. For the water lovers pick a stretch of river that suits your needs. If you want to raft class III white water, camp a night and do some fly fishing on a gentle stretch. The following day check out the upper section of the Colorado River or Blue River confluence. For those looking to take in the scenery and breathe in the crisp mountain air, head over to Rocky Mountain National Park to do some hiking and mountain biking. There are also numerous other activities you can do to fill up some of your “off” time such as zip lining, horseback riding, fly fishing, hot air balloon rides, train rides and watching a sports game.
Regardless of if you hang out in Denver for the week and live it up in LoDo, or come up to the mountains and backpack all 53 14ers, it will be a trip you will never forget. For those headed to the mountains make sure to pack smart; layers are key as we can still have a foot of snow fall overnight in May.
