This adventure outfitter has been in business for 35 years, helping families experience the great Colorado outdoors. With a “storefront” on the Snowmass Village Mall, Blazing Adventures offers in-person help with planning your vacation activities. Many families try whitewater rafting — a mild float trip on the Colorado River is appropriate for kids as young as 4, while older kids love the rapids on the Roaring Fork River. Starting at age 8, kids can go on horseback rides, and biking tours range from easy downhills on pavement to challenging, mountainous narrow trails. Hot-air balloon rides, guided hikes, Jeep tours and fly-fishing excursions are other trips organized by this respected company.
