Snowmass Village sits a comfortable 8,000 feet above sea level. As many of you are traveling from lower elevations, you may experience mild altitude illness. It is recommended that you limit your exercise, drink plenty of water, avoid tobacco and alcohol, and use the hotel-provided humidifiers. If you develop symptoms lasting more than a few days, please contact your hotel staff member or a FASEB staff member, especially if you require medical assistance.

Group Activity

River Rafting Adventure 

This (optional) river rafting activity on the Colorado River boasts excellent Class III whitewater, followed by a stunning and scenic relaxing float within steep majestic canyon walls. These rapids, with names like “Superstition”, “The Wall”, and “Pinball”, create an exhilarating section of unforgettable white water. The first section has Class III rapids and then declines to Class II & I as we focus on the beautiful scenery in the canyon.  Price of the official group activity includes snacks, drinks and tax.  

From our river guides at Blazing Adventures:

What Should I Wear?
We recommend that you wear a bathing suit as your base layer. We will provide rafting jackets, pants and a wet suit, if necessary. We have neoprene booties available or you can wear shoes that will stay on your feet and can get wet (flip flops are not appropriate). Bring dry clothes for the ride home.

What Should I Bring? 
We suggest the disposable, waterproof type cameras. Pictures will be taken from the shore and will be available for purchase.

Details about this group event and other optional Blazing Adventures activities in the Snowmass/Aspen Area will be announced in an email to conference attendees.
