What Will Your Day Consist of…?
Once you arrive to the put-in location, your Weber river rafting guide will conduct a safety speech to show you how to use your gear in a safe manner and prepare you with safety measures while on the water. Depending on how fast the Weber river is flowing (May – July – high water), weather, and other factors, the Weber River rafting trip will take around 3 hours. All of UOA’s river guides are First Aid certified, CPR certified and highly experienced.
What to Wear on My Excursion. The summer can bring variable weather and temperatures. Typical daytime highs in July and August are in the 90’s, but occasionally can be as low as the 60’s. The day may start out relatively cool but quickly heat up by mid-morning. You may want to bring a warm top to start the day, but have a light layer or bathing suit underneath when it heats up. During the summer, Park City is blessed with sunny and dry weather, however, there are occasional afternoon thunderstorms that may pop up. You may want to bring a rain jacket if the weather predicts rain during your adventure. Be sure to check the local weather forecast trip to help you plan for the weather.
- Wear clothing that will dry quickly. Swimsuits, nylon and other synthetic clothing is recommended; cotton and blue jeans are not recommended.
- Use footwear that will dry quickly. We recommend rubberized or nylon-based sandals that secure to your foot or river shoes. Flip flops may get lost.
- The elevation of the Weber River is about 5,300 feet where we put in around Henefer, UT. There is plenty of sunshine, it’s a good idea to bring a hat and sunscreen that will protect you from sunburn.
- UOA will have some extra sunscreen and plenty of water for everyone!
A Little Extra Detail About Your River Rafting Adventure: We will navigate class II-III rapids, dodge a lot of rocks, and enjoy beautiful scenery and wildlife. We’ll encounter diverse landscape changes including Devils Slide, farmlands and mountains. We will float a canyon where we encounter the “rock garden” which is the most technical section of the Weber River. It is very interactive as we dodge big rocks in some fast current.
Through the next section of the Weber River, we will encounter limestone formations unique to Utah. We will have some more rock dodging then flat-water sections to relax. The last rapid on the Weber River is Taggart Falls, one of the several class II-III rapids we’ll encounter. Here we will splash through the rapids as we dodge more rocks.
When we are done with your rafting trip we’ll dry off, load up and take you back to your lodging location. Depending on all the variables mentioned, you should plan on being out 4-5 hours from door to door.
Memories! UOA has three Go Pro video cameras and a digital SLR camera to help capture your adventure down the Weber River. There will be photographs included with every trip.
How to Put on a Life Jacket
Life jackets saves lives. Although the Weber river is only a class II, it is strongly recommended to wear a PFD while rafting. This is a quick video on how to put on a life jacket.
