Trip Info

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  view the fall foliage. We welcome rafters ages 12 and up on this popular Vermont whitewater rafting trip.  

Our base of operations for the West River trip is the Sun Bowl Lodge at Stratton Mountain, southern Vermont's premier four-season resort. With an alpine village, full amenities, comfortable accommodations, and a large meeting space, Stratton Mountain is the perfect starting point for a great spring or fall adventure!

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. We stop by the riverside for a brief snack and have opportunities for swimming before taking out below the route 100 bridge. Back at Stratton Mountain a hearty meal of barbecued chicken and a slide show of the trip provide a fitting finale to this unique adventure. 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.
