We are Sleeping Rainbow Adventures, an outdoor guide company based out of Torrey, UT.

We have a Women's Backpacking + Yoga trip in Paria Canyon from September 23-29, and we have an immediate need to hire an experienced backpacking guide to help lead the trip. 

For the trip, you'll be paid $175 per day for 7 days of work, plus tips at the end of the trip. Food will be provided, and you can borrow any gear for the trip if needed. Compensation for travel time to our office in Torrey, UT and the trip departure location of St. George, UT may be provided as well, please reach out for additional information.

Candidates must have a current WFR certification, driver's license and experience backpacking in the canyon country of the American Southwest. Previous experience with Paria Canyon is highly preferred, but experience as a professional backpacking guide is not required.

As a guide, you'll team up with owner and former NPS Park Ranger Allison to ensure everyone has a safe, comfortable, and fun time in one of the most beautiful places in the world! You'll help demonstrate proper backcountry and Leave No Trace ethics and techniques, and help with packing group gear, cooking meals, and setting up camp. Work is expected to be 9-12 hours per day. Feel free to join Allison as she leads yoga and meditation sessions in the canyon as well! You may need to help drive a company-provided vehicle in the prep and post-trip phase on September 23 and September 29. See our detailed trip packet for the trip plan for our guests.

If you are looking for stable employment before or after this trip, we can provide a guide position for you with free housing in Torrey, UT starting at $18-25 an hour (depending on experience and skills.) We mostly do Jeep tours with some guided hikes of Capitol Reef and Grand Staircase-Escalante, but can also provide training and work as a stargazing/astronomy or art & photography guide if desired. Our season ends mid-November, but we require no commitment from you to work until a specific date - you can leave whenever you'd like.
