Our crew of fun, passionate, 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. For example, our Director of Operations, Tim Gaylord, has been with us for 42 years. His second-in-command in Green River, Kelly Dunham, has been with us for 36 years. Vernal Operations Manager Ben Levine has been on the oars since 2003. Several of our trip leaders (like Tilts and T.J.) have been around for decades! 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.
