2. NUMBERS - Arkansas River - Classic 1/2 day Class IV thrill ride for those people who want the next step up from the Shoshone Rapids. This trip involves several miles of non-stop rapids and highly technical boulder gardens. Our top guides will give you a non-stop, anaerobic whitewater experience and get you back to Aspen in plenty of time for some afternoon golf or tennis. Previous rafting experience is recommended. Minimum age: 18. Length: 5-6 hrs. Season: June to mid-August. (includes lunch)
3. PINE CREEK/NUMBERS - EXPERTS ONLY! - Arkansas River - A full day of Class IV & V whitewater. Previous Class III and IV rafting experience is required. This section is 10 miles of intense whitewater punctuated by the 1/2 mile long Class V rapid called Pine Creek. We scout Pine Creek with an option to walk if you so choose. At certain high flows, we will portage this rapid. This run demands serious paddling for the experienced person and is not suitable for beginners. Work up to this trip by boating on other Class III and IV sections of the Arkansas. If you have what it takes, you will find this run to be challenging and fun. Blazing Adventures provides wetsuit booties, wetsuit, life jacket and helmet. Additional fleece wear is recommended. Minimum age: 18. Length: 7 hrs. Season: June to mid-August. (includes lunch)
