Off-Season Employment Opportunities:

“These boatmen. These jet-set river guides. Bright, handsome, talented young men with many skills, equally adept at river running, cooking, rock climbing, glacier trekking, search and rescue, fishing, hunting, skiing, guitar, harmonica, song. True outdoorsmen, who not only know but also love the out-of-doors. And indeed, how could you know it unless you loved it? As on any commercial river trip, the boatmen– and often, these days, the boat women– are the best part of the trip. The most interesting part. The rest is scenery.”
