white water rafting beginners' trip green river daily • 3 days
Everyone is welcome on this popular, fun, and educational weekend where we introduce you to river-running. It is like a car camp where you run the river during the day. Experienced people share skills and safety techniques. There will be an oar rig, inflatable kayaks, canoes and hardshell kayaks which you can try out. The Green River flows through Gray's canyon just north of the town of Green River. It is about a 5 hour river run, with easy to mildly challenging rapids - perfect for beginners. Skills include learning to read the river, personal safety, river rescue and optional water fights. The trip cost is usually under $100 - a great deal! Typically WMC river trip organizers require a novice to have been on at least one previous WMC river trip so here's your chance to gain experience. The group leaves Salt Lake Friday afternoon and returns early Sunday evening (plan on taking a half day of vacation on Friday).The mandatory planning meeting will be at 6:00 pm Friday May 9th at the boat shed (see the link below). Wanda Gayle and Alan Mayo are the organizers. Call or email to sign up. You must contact the organizer to get on this trip. Don't think you can show up at the planning meeting and get on this trip, you must register with the organizer.
