This is it, a pure whitewater adventure in the Vail Valley’s backyard. If you’re looking for whitewater, well this has it and more. A seasonal adventure that wows! Dowd Chute, a Class IV+ section of the Eagle River, has continuous rapids along this high altitude alpine river. The steep narrow section of Dowd Chute Rapid extends nearly 1/4 mile long. This is an Action-packed adventure! Only 10 minutes away from Vail and Beaver Creek. A local favorite and home stretch of the GoPro Summer Games. A must do for any whitewater enthusiast and adventurer. An early season guide favorite. This is a physically challenging section so we recommend previous experience.
