The Mountain Goat Lodge is your gateway to Colorado adventure travel.

Arkansas River rafting is one of Salida’s most popular summer adventure activities.  A number of professional outfitters in Salida offer whitewater rafting trips in all difficulties and lengths.

Monarch Mountain Ski Resort is Salida’s nearest offering of the most popular winter activity in Colorado.  Whether you prefer downhill skiing, snowcat skiing, or snowboarding, Monarch Mountain offers some of the best skiing in Colorado.  New to the sport?  Stop in for fun ski lessons!

Make the Colorado 14ers your climbing destination to take on the challenge of Colorado’s 14,000’+ mountains!  Colorado has fifty-eight 14ers waiting to be climbed. But be prepared for your trip by fully acclimating yourself to the altitude, train hard in preparation for hiking in the thin air, and start your 14ers hike early in the day to avoid afternoon storms.  Also, bring plenty of water and a few antacids to combat altitude sickness.
