An ‘Epic Day’ at Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center

What does it take to have an epic day in Central Colorado? An afternoon of adventure with the guides at the Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center. Each staff member is truly passionate about outdoor activities and they love to share their knowledge and inspire guests to get excited about the plethora of fun activities the area has to offer. Whether it’s spring, summer, fall or winter, the RMOC guides are serious about outdoor adventure and offer everything from guided excursions to professional instruction and certification courses — all from their location at the entrance to Browns Canyon National Monument in the Arkansas River Valley.

As the premier outpost for outdoor adventures, RMOC has everything you need to have an epic day. If you’re looking for a land-based adventure, the center offers six different venues for rock climbing outings and has access to over 200 miles of epic mountain bike trails. For water enthusiasts seeking river activities, the guides at RMOC are happy to lead you through whatever kayak, whitewater rafting or SUP adventure your heart desires. “We don’t just take people boating, we turn them into boaters,” says veteran RMOC guide, Kate Stepan. “Each person that works here is excited to have you around for another epic day.”

And did we mention free camping? RMOC boasts a private riverside campground free to anyone that books a trip or educational course through the center. Daily adventures coupled with a relaxing evening by the river is really all that you need to have the perfect Colorado getaway.

And this year, RMOC is offering a ground-breaking new product called the Rocky Mountain Adventure Pass. Much like a ski pass, you can pay an upfront fee and gain access to a full year of instructional courses offered through the adventure school. Learn to paddle a whitewater kayak down the river, row your own raft, or surf a paddleboard. Or learn the ropes of rock climbing, or how to safely shred singletrack. Backcountry skiing and splitboarding courses are also available during the winter months. Even basic safety and rescue courses are part of the pass. “I don’t think that there is another product like this available anywhere else,” says owner Brandon Slate. “It is just super unique to have access to this many activities at one location.”

And there is no offseason. Buy this pass and have access to year-round adventures in the heart of the Rockies. The Rocky Mountain Adventure Pass can be purchased for $650 and is good for one full year from the date of purchase. Make this year the year that you explore all of the adventures that Colorado has to offer, and do it with the knowledgeable guides at RMOC and the budget-friendly Rocky Mountain Adventure Pass.
