5 Adventures for an Epic Bachelorette

Not every girl wants a bachelorette party dripping in pink props and glitter. Celebrate the outdoor couple with an event filled with adventure, Summit-County style, for the whole crew to remember forever. New in-laws are only invited if they can keep up.

1. Whitewater Rafting

See miles of gorgeous terrain and wildlife on a trip that can be mild or wild, depending on what you’re into. Keep the memories, with most guide companies placing photographers at key rapids to get the shots.

Some companies can add hot springs or cliff jumping stops, and you can stop along the river banks to bond over a picnic lunch. Check out AVA Rafting or KODI Rafting for more info or to book a trip.

2. Stand Up Paddle Board

The still waters of the Lake Dillon Reservoir make SUP a fun summer activity for everyone. All the necessary equipment is available from the Frisco or Dillon Marinas, and from some shops in town. Anyone intimidated by a paddle board can join the group in a kayak to explore the little islands on the lake. Find your own private beach to catch some rays, bring wine, and have a party.

3. Summit a 14er

What better way to celebrate brave new steps in life than to bag a 14er? (For anyone not from Colorado, that’s a summit over 14,000 feet high) Take the path to the top of Quandary, and find out why it’s Colorado’s most popular one.

Grays and Torreys border the county, and give the unique opportunity for hikers to summit two peaks over 14,000 feet in one day. Start your hike in the morning as afternoon thunderstorms can be sudden and dangerous.

4. Hit the Tramps

Need just a little time to be a kid again before the big day? Take the crew to check out an introductory session at Copper’s Woodward Barn.

Camp Woodward was started as a training ground for young extreme athletes, and the facility at Copper is state-of-the-art. It’s also open to anyone who wants to play, and incredibly fun for kids of all ages. Book a two-hour intro session and an extreme sports coach will introduce you to the facility before setting you free.

Foam Pits at Woodward Barn

Enjoy 5 Olympic-sized Flybed trampolines, a super-tramp, a spring floor, and so much more. There are special zones for skate, BMX, snowboard, and ski training, and foam pits for perfecting jumps and spins. Reserve your session on Copper’s website.

5. Via Ferrata

The words mean “iron path” in Italian, and A-Basin’s new climbing route will not disappoint. Brilliant views and awesome guides make this Via Ferrata one of Summit’s most spectacular group adventures.

Two options are offered; a full-day trip to the summit (13,000ft) that includes lunch and a slightly easier partial-day trip.
