We are looking for a qualified Lead Canyoneering Guide/Instructor to join our Southern Utah canyoneering team. This position will assist in all aspects of our wilderness education and guiding programs including trip planning, logistics, route reconnaissance, guiding and administration.
We hire wilderness guides and instructors that are proficient in all disciplines of wilderness travel. Alpine Mountaineering, Canyoneering, Rock Climbing, Backpacking, Scrambling, Winter Mountaineering and Wilderness Leadership round out our primary areas of instruction.
Professional wilderness guiding and instruction is a very exciting and rewarding career. The great relationships we develop, the variety of guests that we work with, the incredible wilderness areas we work in and the unique challenges of our outdoor office environment all contribute in making our profession one of the most exciting and rewarding in the world.
Our profession requires not only a passion for the outdoors, but an equally great passion for our guests. To be successful, guides must be able to share their wilderness knowledge and skills in a safe, supportive and professional manner. To be a lead guide/instructor for us, you must be exceptionally skilled, knowledgeable and patient as well as be in excellent physical condition.
We are an outdoor adventure/guiding organization based in Southern Utah and Western Washington. We offer a wide range of wilderness trips and courses for adventurers of all ages and skill levels. From exciting backpacking, scrambling, canyoneering and snowshoe classes to family adventure vacations, vehicle basecamp adventuress and hard core wilderness expeditions, we have trips and programs for adventure enthusiasts of all ages, interests and skill levels.
One of our primary company missions is that we like to have fun. For us there is nothing more exciting than exploring a majestic and awe-inspiring alpine wonderland, an undiscovered, intricately sculpted, twisting turning red-rock canyon, the breath-taking experience of exploring pristine glacial carved lakes, rugged and remote mountain ranges, or the tranquil serenity of a cool, refreshing stream.
Next to fun, we were founded on the belief that paramount in sharing our experiences with others is the inherent need to train and empower individuals to make safer decisions as they explore the wilderness on their own. We make no compromises on safety. Our courses are carefully designed to help students master and retain the essential skills necessary to travel safely in wilderness environments. We don’t simply lead clients to a specific destination as many guide services do; we teach them all of the essential leadership, safety and environmental stewardship skills necessary to ensure that their future wilderness experiences are as safe and rewarding as possible.
THE IDEAL CANDIDATE:
The foremost quality that we look for in a guide/instructor is overall competence as a wilderness leader. We look for guides that possess a highly developed sense of self-worth combined with a gregarious and humble personality. Equally important is the ability to be a team player capable of motivating and inspiring your team towards a common set of objectives.
Teaching ability is an equally important requirement for instructors. You must thrive on helping others learn the essential skills of our trade and be able to do so in an approachable and easily understood manner.
We are willing to train potential candidates who are willing to commit to the extensive training required to guide and instruct commercial trips and courses.
