Similar to the 8-Ball Kayak Sprint, the Pacifico Raft Cross is a raft race (two person rafts) on the Class II / III whitewater of Gore Creek in Vail Village. Two person teams will have a chance to showcase their speed, agility, and aggression in a timed qualifying run through the heart of Vail Village on Gore Creek. Teams will then be placed in “race pods” of no more than three teams to go head-to-head in the Vail Whitewater Park (1/10th of a mile). The winner(s) advance to the next round. Along the way, rafters will have to navigate no less than 2 upstream gates and don’t forget, RAMMING IS ALLOWED.
Open (Teams of 2)
Race start is located riverside below the covered bridge in Mountain House Gear Town and the finish location will be at the International Bridge.
