Our Jobs

We have a tiered pay scale based on years with NOVA. All pay exceeds rates paid by most guide services in the USA. There are pay rates for individual trips. Gratuities are encouraged and are your responsibility. Hourly pay is available for projects and maintenance of gear.

Our season runs from May 15 - September 15 for most positions. We can work with your academic or other schedule requirements. River trip season ends usually around the end of August do to low water. Glacier guiding goes until first snow and around October.

  • Glacier Guides


    Glacier guides need to be athletic and good on their feet with lots of hiking experience over irregular terrain. We will provide all necessary training for those with and without glacier experience. Ice climbing and more advanced skills will be offered to qualify for the advanced trips. Prior experience is given priority on hiring and selection to guide the higher paid trips. 

    All guides should have at least advanced first aid and preference to hire for those with WFR. All guides receive training in the guiding protocols and our philosophy of this discipline regardless of previous experience.
