Utah Rafting

Headed to Draper, UT for 10 days to train to Paraglide. Will have lots of free time in afternoons. Wondering if there is any good rivers with water this time of year to raft near the Draper/SLC area? (Within an hour)

Provo river is the only thing you can put a raft on around here. And I don't know what it's flowing at now. It's dam released so I am sure there is some water, but don't expect anything much at all, class 1-2 is all you get. Most people tube this stretch.

Green River daily is 3 hours driving from Draper.

In good water years the Weber river can be rafted and in good traffic is only an hour+ from SLC. The upper section near Echo Res. is good at 400+ and higher (Untitled Page)

The lower section near Ogden is fun when it's around 1,000 CFS or more.
