We’re a female-led guide service based in Reno-Tahoe that offers women’s outdoor education and recreational trips. We offer programs all over northern California (Sierra Nevada, Tahoe, Yosemite) and climbing in the Eastern Sierra.

Our focus is on backpacking, climbing, mountaineering, backcountry ski/split, and general outdoor skills for women’s empowerment in the wilderness.

We are looking to hire year-round guiding staff to help lead trips. It is best if you can cover multiple disciplines for consistent work, however, seasonal commitment may be considered.

We are now booking for summer 2024 backpacking and climbing trips.

We’re looking to make an impact in the outdoor industry by helping women overcome a lack of confidence or intimidation that may face to be able to explore the outdoors armed with knowledge and power. Along with our education programs, we also offer a lot of fun events in Yosemite and further recreational treks like Kilimanjaro and Everest Base Camp.

This role starts as an independent contractor with competitive day rates plus bonus program and perks.

If you have the experience, knowledge + stellar customer service skills then come & join us!
