Almost All Hired Up!

We had a fantastic time (mostly!) interviewing fresh young wanna be raft guides and zipline guides. We are almost all hired up for the season. The only positions we still have to fill are for a drug free shuttle driver, some zipline guides and an office person for Gardiner. Come on, people! These are great jobs!
Actually, we are still receiving a few resumes a day, we're just picky! We have been using skype this year to interview out of town applicants, and that was strange at first, but we got used to it. It's usually so strange to see people for the first time, if we hired them over the phone. And asking people to send a photo is just silly. Right?
Many people like to go on about how working with us would be a dream job and how much they love to be outside and bla bla bla! I can hardly stand it anymore! I would like people to realize that this is a job like any other, and telling me how great it would be for you if you got this job, well thats just obvious. You wouldnt say that at any old job interview! It's so irrelevant! Please tell me what you can do for us! How much you have to contribute! The benefits for you are obvious, I need to know why i should train you, manage you and get you to the point of even being able to do the job!
That being said, I am Very pleased with our selection of new guides for this year. I hope they do me proud!

Zipline Opening in March!

We are super fired up to get on it for the coming season - so much so, that we hope to get the Zipline up and running in March! That means that all you spring breakers can have something fun to do besides ski every day.
The Zipline tour is great for kids, age 6 or 7 and up. Little kids can zip on their own or go tandem with a guide. The experience is very empowering and super fun for all ages. Hopefully weather will be on our side for this early season opening - call us to reserve your spot or chat about possibilites. We look forward to rocking your world!

Green River Family Raft trip!

At the end of October, we loaded up the 'Burban with 2 rafts, a canoe and all the gear for a 16 day odyssey on the Green River. Steve Abbot (safety boater and guide at MWW) and his old friend, Greg, were brave enough to accompany us....
We paddled 7 days on Labyrinth and 9 days through Stillwater and Cataract Canyon. The trip ended in Lake Powell.
It was Epic!!!
We have more pics n stuff on Facebook.

Yellowstone fees to be waived three weekends this summer

To spur interest in the American National Park system during the recession, entrance fees at parks will be waived for three weekends throughout the summer.

That's quite the cost savings if you're planning a summer visit to Yellowstone National Park.

The free weekends are scheduled for June 20-21, July 18-19 and Aug. 15-16.

In addition, Interior Department officials say businesses within parks will be offering special discounts, though we're not expecting too much in Yellowstone: those three weekends are among the prime tourist times, and there's very little room availability in the Park for those three weekends. (As we discovered: we're planning an excursion to Old Faithful Inn the weekend of June 20-21 and scored reservations literally monthd ago. Good thing.)If we hear anything about concessionaire discounts during those weekends, we'll pass them along.

We're Tourists Too!

Our Family just got back from a 10 day family vacation in Baja, Mexico.
The first night we arrived, We got lost multiple times on the way to our hotel. We then got super deeply stuck when we drove our compact 2 wheel drive car into the beach. Bill Said... "We shouldn't drive into this sand or we are going to get stuck" and then he drove it into the sand.

After many years of taking tourists rafting, we have observed that people generally behave more stupidly on vacation than they might at home. These people are mostly overworked, overtired, over extended and trying to enjoy an active vacation with their family when really, they might prefer a week in a dark room or an isolation tank.
We are no different. And that is why we can say with confidence that we understand. You need extra special care. You need tlc. You need to not be treated like a tourist.
