Colorado’s wild fluctuations in snowfall and weather drastically impact the eventual snowmelt and runoff. Therefore, an accurate prediction is often difficult, until now. The total snow depth and its Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) are outstanding and well above average. Rivers across the state currently tend to be anywhere from 20% to 50% above average. Located in Buena Vista, CO, the nation’s most popular whitewater river, the Arkansas River, looks fantastic at around 30% above average. 

So you’ve come to the Breckenridge area of Colorado to enjoy an adventurous, scenic summer vacation in the mountains. Most likely typical Colorado activities such as whitewater rafting and hiking are on the agenda. Perhaps zip-lining and mountain biking as well? But you’ve dismissed horseback riding in Colorado because you want adventure and/or scenery and sitting on an old nag, following a dozen others going nose-to-tail down a trail doesn’t exactly appeal to your sense of adventure. Nor does riding a horse on a trail crowded with other hikers, bikers, dogs etc. sound like your idea of enjoying nature with the quiet companionship of an animal. Well think again!
