The Outdoor Guides at Deer Valley Ranch work under the direction of the Outdoor Programs Leader to lead, guide, and execute all outdoor adventure activities at Deer Valley Ranch (guided overnight camping trips, guided 14er summits, guided mountain biking, guided rock climbing, rappelling, guided hikes, and fly fishing instruction). Outdoor Guides work directly with guests (children, teens, adults, and entire families) while ensuring adventure activities are conducted safely and in a fun and engaging manner. Ideally, the Outdoor Guides are familiar with the local area of Buena Vista, Nathrop, and the San Isabel National Forest. WFA, WFR, or other backcountry first aid certification required (we provide training if you don't already have a certification.) Robust technical experience in outdoor activities is strongly recommended, but training is provided.

  • Being familiar with the DVR trail system and surrounding public lands
  • Receiving daily and weekly schedules from the Outdoor Programs Leader and Office staff
