Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Colorado tend to be more challenging than the national average, so keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. The scenic beauty of Colorado and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. Getting some good exercise
    and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. There are plenty of hotels here if you want to spend a night, but you'd better reserve
in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good spots for that around here. The put-in location is a short drive from Edwards.

Briefly about the general area:
The snow is good at Buttermilk, and going for a hike on the Trail Riders Trail is always a great adventure. You'll meet a lot of folks from Snowmass Village here, and you can go for a hike on the Blue Creek
 
Trail. At this river you will never have a bad time. All through the summertime months, highs regularly are in the 80's at Blazing Adventures. Summer nighttime lows sink down to the 50's. Daytime highs during the winter are in the 30's; after the sun is down during the wintertime temperatures at Blazing Adventures plunge into the 0's. Blazing Adventures is a location that is rather waterless generally. Through the month of April you get the most rain around here while June is mostly the driest month.
