Ryan Aronson, grew up rafting rivers all over the west with his family before he became a guide. He has over 10 years of experience guiding and trip leading. Ryan is an elementary school teacher in the off-season and is a proud father. His knowledge about the river and its history leaves every guest with a deep appreciation for whichever canyon they are rafting through.  
Heather Alkire recently graduated from the University of Idaho with a degree in Natural Resources Management. This will be her 7th year guiding on the Salmon and Snake rivers and we are lucky to have her. Heather has a great attitude and a love for the outdoors. Her laugh is contagious and she seems to make everyone around her have more fun. 
Jeff Smith is an avid outdoorsman and an incredible storyteller. After working for a few years in Natural Resources, he decided he would rather share his love for the outdoors as a guide. He now spends most of his time climbing, fishing, rafting, or skiing. He works as a ski instructor at Snowbird in the winter. When Jeff isn't telling jokes, he has been known to play the harmonica around the campfire.  
Elizabeth Price was raised in southern Idaho and attended college at Colorado State where she started her rafting career 7 years ago. Her love for rivers and the outdoors has taken her around the United States in search for the best rafting out there. She has now returned to Idaho where her level of enthusiasm and excitement matches the kids she loves taking down the river or teaching in the classroom here in Riggins. 
Jesse Stone is a graduate of the University of Idaho. He grew up an hour away from Riggins in Grangeville and has been involved in Rafting since he was 14 years old working in the warehouse. Jesse’s life goal is to continue sharing his passion for Idaho and its backcountry with others. Jesse has a happy-go-lucky attitude and a great ability to communicate with kids.
Jon Kittell graduated from Colorado State University and is an expert in the geology and ecology of the area. He started guiding in Colorado and his guiding experiences have taken him over-seas to lead rafting and trekking expeditions in Nepal. Jon's happy and easygoing nature makes it impossible for guests to worry about anything. When Jon isn't rafting he is usually fishing or planning his next adventure. Jon guides many of our fishing trips in the summer and fall.
