Whitewater Course Now Open

The Adventure Sports Center International's (ASCI) mountaintop recirculating whitewater course is open for the season!  This unique attraction offers whitewater rafting, kayaking, duckying (inflatable kayaks) and river boarding on Class II - III rapids in a controlled environment.  

The man-made course is 1/3 mile long with a 24 vertical foot drop and features 6 variable wave shapers throughout the course that can be adjusted without interrupting operations.  ASCI's natural look and feel comes from over 40 million pounds of on-site excavated rock that line the riverbed and allow for great river-side spectating.  Four 530-hp pumps get the water moving in the starting pond and send it down river to end up in the lower pond.  Once rafters run the course they land in the lower pond then paddle their way onto the custom-made conveyor carpet that will bring them back up to the starting pond to run the course again.

New to Whitewater?

No problem!  The recirculating whitewater course is great for beginners and families because it simulates a real river experience with added safety and comfort features including river-side monitors and close proximity to facilities such as restrooms and showers.  The Class II - III rapids are ideal for novice rafters and kayakers while those looking for extra thrills can try river boarding or duckying.  Whitewater rafting requires a minimum weight of 50 pounds.  Check our rates here.

Ways to Whitewater

Whitewater rafting and kayaking are the most common ways to ride the rapids but ASCI offers two alternative ways to get down the river - duckies and river boards!  Duckies are inflatable kayaks that don't require a 'skirt' or master Eskimo roll.  River boards are a boogie board for rapids that you ride down on your stomach with flippers on your feet.  Both duckies and river boards require a first time guide assist session and a minimum age of 16.  

Give us a call to reserve a time to MAKE A SPLASH at the Adventure Sport Center International's recirculating whitewater course - 800.462.9477!
