  • River and Rock Adventures
    River and Rock Adventures' experienced guides help whitewater rafters traverse the three exciting and challenging forks of California’s American River. The Class-III south fork is ideal for first-timers testing the waters, and the Class-IV middle fork keeps intermediate paddlers on their tippiest of toes. Floaters on the popular lower south fork trip, also known as The Gorge, will journey through 14 miles of beautiful scenery and legendary rapids. After taking off from the base camp in Rivers Bend Resort at 11:30 a.m., rafts will pass through a relaxing stretch of Class II rapids as the Sierra foothills taper off to give the river a rocky hug. Photographers will be present to catch flashes of adventurous heroism and poorly timed nose picking while rafters swirl around in Class-III whitewater before the 2.5-hour tour comes to an end.

  • Mariah Wilderness Expeditions
    Donna Hunter started whitewater rafting as a hobby, but after spending 15 years as a social worker in San Diego, she was drawn back to the river as a career. With a few friends for support and a goal to start a rafting-adventure company, she went to night school and honed her business skills. Today, with some of her staff boasting more than 20 years experience leading tours, Donna orchestrates trips down various forks of the American, Merced, Kings, and Tuolumne Rivers to pit participants against rapids as high as Class V. Certified guides lead these tours in Hyside self-bailing rafts and inflatable kayaks, with some rafts holding up to eight people. Wilderness guides also connect their guests with civilization, often combining rafting excursions with wine tastings and trips to local vineyards. On these overnight trips and other multi-day rafting excursions such as family gold-panning trips, they build relationships with their guests, garnering a clear idea of their paddling skills and the amount of time they've spent practicing in their washing machine. The company?s camp boasts tent cabins?with names like Eagle's Nest and Falcon's Nest?which populate riverside clearings between picnic tables, swimming holes, and volleyball courts. A camp shop prepares guests with river gear, and hot-water showers let them wash off river water. When not seeking action on the river, staffers organize camp entertainment, such as live music, games, and visits from a local gold panner who demonstrates his craft.

  • Auburn Valley Golf Course
    Since it was carved out of the California countryside in 1960, Auburn Valley Golf Course has built a reputation as a hidden gem in the Sierra Foothills. The 18-hole championship course challenges golfers with one test after another: two of the course's longest holes crop up early at numbers three and five, and the entire back nine incorporates water. Before tackling these hurdles, though, players can get a little practice. They're invited to perfect their swing on a grass driving range, or visit the putting green, which is lighted so balls don't have to wear little mining helmets. Before and after rounds, guests can also pop into the Valley View Grille for food and drinks. Course at a Glance 18-hole, par 72 course Total of 6,911 yards from the back tees Five tees per hole Course rating of 73.9 Course slope of 132 Click to view the scorecard.

  • Curves
    As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
