Hello, I am currently in snow mass and plan to schedule rafting for kids age 8 above
I am wondering how cold water will be ? Will it be Chilly or normal?
What river are you rafting?
Hi, have not decided yet,
Ideally i need the one which is children friendly and water is not cold
any recommondations. Regards
As missp pointed out, you're rafting on snowmelt. The water temp does go up throughout the summer, but ranges from ice-cold to freezing-cold.
Thank you for feedback
But most rafting companies offer wet suits. I ALWAYS take the wet suit option. I've never been too warm in one. Only problem is not being able to go to the bathroom very easily. You can of course, but it is a production to get in and out of the suit.
The least cold water will be in the CO River versus Roaring Fork. The Grizzly section is typically chosen for small children or newbies. For those a little older and more water aware, the Shoshone section is a more adventurous ride.
