With this past weekend’s snow storm moving out, and next weekends getting closer to moving in, the snowpack in San Juan Mountains has reached 100% of average. Put simply, this means we’re in for a great season of boating!

Upwards of 30 inches of snow fell on the mountain passes north of Durango this past weekend, adding to our increasingly impressive winter snowpack. With a snowpack such as this, we’re typically in for a long boating season, as well as an extended period of high water. Mountain Waters Rafting is hoping to get its season underway within the first few weeks of May, and once that snow begins to melt we should be able to settle in for a good, long season.

If you’re looking at booking a trip with us this summer, you can expect our peak water to come around the first week of June and continue throughout the month. Typically, our water slowly tapers off from that point into late August.

Mountain Waters will be offering a variety of trips this season. Those trips include two Animas River options, a class two/three Durango town run and a class five wilderness run that begins in Silverton, Colorado and includes Durango and Silverton Train option. The Upper Animas package includes two and three day trips. We also offer a class five run on the designated wild and scenic Piedra River.

Once we get through our high water season, Mountain Waters will also be offering duckie trips through Durango.

If you’re looking for a raft and train package, we do that as well. Look for our “Raft and Rail” options.

We look forward to another great season at Mountain Waters and we hope you’ll swing in and come boating with us! You can book your trip online now!
