West River Raft Whitewater Trip

Enjoy an active vacation in Vermont on the Class III and IV rapids of the West River near Stratton Mountain, one of the state's hidden treasures. This intermediate-level white water rafting trip is an ideal way to get the spring run-off volume in early May or view the fall foliage in late September. We put in at Ball Mountain Dam, where water is released for the trip. Our first taste of big whitewater comes as we head into Landslide rapid. Several miles of continuous rapids later we meet our biggest challenge at the Dumplings where negotiating the river's natural s-turn pushes each raft's paddling skills to the limit. Participants on West River trips should be prepared for a fairly strenuous walk down a steep rocky trail at the beginning of the trip. Participants on this trip may be required to swim aggressively in rocky, fast whitewater.
