Lead Guide

Guides at Zion Adventures are canyoneers, hikers, mountain bikers, and climbers, we are also educators and leaders.  A Zion Adventure guide is a powerful mixture of character, empathy, integrity, curiosity, and humility. We thrive on sharing our passion for the outdoors with others and by giving them the skills and autonomy to do so on their own. You will be joining a diverse group of individuals from a variety of backgrounds all united by a common mission and a passion for guiding, education, and the outdoors. We are in a constant pursuit to better ourselves and the organization. Many of those who have moved here to be guides with us have found this chapter of their lives to be much longer than they expected, and are happy for it. If working with and being challenged by these types of people excites or inspires you, we encourage you to apply. All qualified candidates will be given thorough consideration and evaluation.
