Our crew of fun, passionate, and professional guides is led by a top-notch management team. Read below to meet the guides who work with us. We are proud to have a seasoned, steadfast operations staff, a rarity among seasonal outfitting businesses. Our Director of Operations, Tim Gaylord, has been with us for 40+ years! We have trip leaders (Like Tilts, TJ, and Sherpa) who have been around for decades, and even more long time guides who still sneak in a few trips a season. With several more guides making their way towards a decade plus of guiding with Holiday, the mentorship of the Holiday Way is always carried forward. This cumulative expertise is critical to how Holiday River Expeditions maintains our unique and professional operations, balancing innovation and wisdom every step of the way.
