When you come on a river adventure with us, it will all make sense. You’ll understand why we generally have 10-15 applicants per position. With the best rivers, scenery and workplace, we are able to bring together the most amazing staff team.

Without the passion & dedication of this team none of this would be possible. Credentials, years of experience, and safety are paramount -that goes without saying. In addition to their credentials, our team has incredible charisma.


Alpine Rafting Guides all share a passion for the river which shows on every trip they take down the river.  Our Guides come from all over the globe. The Kicking Horse River is world renowned in the guiding community for it’s incredible whitewater. It’s no surprise that we see a lot our Guides return year after year. Guiding positions on the Kicking Horse are hard to come by, and we are fortunate to be able to select the best talent from around the world. Our Team is comprised of 12 guides, of which include Two Head Guides & safety manager. At the helm of these management positions are our most senior staff. They work closely with Jimmy & Val to make sure customer service and safety are second to none. Jimmy has run the river more than anyone out there – he is an exceptional role model for our team.

Here’s a little bit about each of our guides so you get to know our team. You can also request a guide for the day of your trip. While we can’t guarantee that guide, we will do our best!!
