Blue Sky West

Routt county, Colorado whitewater outfitter

 
  Whitewater outfitter

The put-in is not too far from Edwards. The wonderful Routt County scenery and the cool fresh water will make you feel great. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. No need to look hard for hotels, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. Since you're on this site
    you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way in this general area you'll find lots of paddling rivers. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Colorado is often more difficult than elsewhere, so better not
forget that rivers here are less forgiving. The Park Range scenery is wonderful.

Briefly about the general area:
Good hiking is available along the Red Dirt Trail, and Heart Spring is a wonderful place to check out while you're at Blue Sky West. And if that's not sufficient there's lots more entertaining stuff to do in the Park Range. Places like Stagecoach State Park are great to take a look at, and you'll perhaps meet some folks
 
from Steamboat Springs here. This is a really good river. Routt National Forest is a good spot to have a look at, and don't leave Blue Sky West without first going for a hike along the Elk Park Trail. Sulphur Cave Spring is always fun to check out, and if you like skiing, you're in luck; Howelsen Hill is relatively near. But wait, there's more to do right next door to Blue Sky West. For the period of the summer at Blue Sky West highs are generally in the 80's. For the period of the dark hours of summer temperatures drop down into the 40's. For the period of the wintertime highs are typically in the 20's; overnight lows at Blue Sky West all through the winter regularly drop into the 0's.
