Gauley Season is Your Season

Were you the type of kid that jammed three more bricks under that plywood ramp to launch your bike even higher knowing full well that the landing would be even sketchier than before?

Is your first thought after “That was awesome!” almost always “Let’s do it again.”?

Do you turn the volume just a little bit louder, drive five over because you can, and always seek more? Then you, my friend… YOU are GAULEY.

There’s a special season for people like you, in the wilderness of West Virginia. It only comes once a year, each Fall, for two months. They call it Gauley Season. It’s legendary. It’s exclusive… and it’s back.

The 2018 Fall Gauley Release calendar from ACE Adventure Resort in West Virginia.

Fall Gauley Releases Are Limited!

What’s Gauley Season? Only the biggest seasonal whitewater event in the country! Each fall the Summerville Dam is cracked open for a few weekends of guaranteed world-class whitewater-making releases! The Upper Gauley will offer up some of the steepest, technical and continuous rapids run commercially, while the Lower Gauley becomes a wave train of rollercoaster-like scenic paddling.

With water releases exclusive to September and October weekends, Fall Gauley Season is a pulse of whitewater adrenaline you’ve got to grab before it’s gone.
