Zip N Raft from 3 Rivers Rafting

Take a zipline tour with Crested Butte Mountain Resort in the morning and then head down to our place for whitewater rafting on the Upper Taylor in the afternoon. This full day of adventure is a great value at just $104 pp ($106.16 with tax). The zipline tour consists of 5 ziplines, each progressively longer and faster. The tour does require a short hike up to the first platform so some measure of fitness is required, as well as closed toe shoes. Zipline participants must weigh between 70 and 250 lbs. The tour lasts for approximately 2 hours. There will be enough time for you to grab a quick lunch and then head south (about 25 minutes) to check in at Three Rivers Resort for rafting. Check in time is 12:45 pm.
