Resort at Squaw Creek, Olympic Valley, CA • August 11–13, 2021

Wend your way from Tahoe City along a peaceful stretch of the Truckee River toward your endpoint at River Ranch. Enjoy a self-guided, self-paced experience in commercial grade river rafts (from 2- to 8-person rafts) as you float through tranquil meadows, between mountains, and into small rapids. Your journey begins at three- to four-foot river depths, and you will encounter a few ponds up to 20-feet deep along the way. (But no waterfalls!) You’ll take on five sets of rapids with the final set (just before River Ranch) as the most challenging. We supply life vests, and the float takes approximately two to three hours, depending on your pace and river level/flow. (Note: You may bring your own soft-sided cooler with snacks and drinks. Alcohol is permitted, but no glass.)

Recommended attire: Bathing suit, quick dry shorts or cover-up, sun shirt, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Footwear is mandatory; sandals with secure straps or water shoes are best—flip flops work, too
