Vail Whitewater Park Now Open!

Vail's Whitewater Park at the Gore Creek Promenade in Vail Village is ready for action. Although water levels have not yet reached the preferred 400 cubic feet per second, the town has activated the park to take advantage of rising water levels.

Free demos at the park will begin Tuesday and continue Tuesday evenings from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. through June 22. The demos are run by Alpine Quest Sports and instructors will be on hand to demonstrate their skills and to show kayakers how to freestyle.

The park has an adjustable whitewater wave that allows kayakers to experience maximum conditions during peak flows. The system will operate into late-June or as runoff allows.

“With lower runoff volumes expected this season, the ability to tweak the wave according to flow means boaters still get the best feature possible at this location,” says Gregg Barrie, the town's landscape architect. “The Teva Mountain Games really benefited from the enhancements last year and would we expect the same this season.”
