Overview

The Outfitting Staff of Zion Adventures forms the backbone of our business operations. Outfitters work inside and play outside; they go canyoneering, hike, climb, and bike to understand Zion and all it has to offer. Hundreds of Park visitors stop by each day seeking assistance in making the most of their time here. It is the Outfitter’s responsibility to help them leave Zion Adventures with an empowering sense of direction. Outfitters prepare visitors to hike the Zion Narrows, answer questions about our services, maintain the vast amounts of equipment we send out each day, and perform other crucial tasks that help visitors have memorable experiences. This position will also include at least one of the others roles listed below 1 -2 days a week.
– Trailhead Shuttle Driver: Responsible for transporting adventurers to their desired destinations in a friendly and professional manner. The Trailhead Shuttle Driver must also be comfortable operating a 14 passenger Ford E350 Van safely on narrow, winding dirt roads. Zion Adventures is committed to providing exemplary customer service, so drivers need to be able to speak knowledgeably about other services we provide, as well as the Zion area. ​
– Assistant Guide: Demanding, rewarding, and extremely educational. ZA Assistant Guides spend about 2/3rds of their season working in the shop as an outfitter, and the other third out in the field on trips. Towards the end of the season, some Assistant Guides feel ready to lead trips on their own and stay on staff as Lead Guides the following season. We invite our applicants to view working with us as a multi-year opportunity.
– Bike Technician: Someone with a passion for people and uniting them with the Zion area through bikes. A broad field of customers and services requires our staff to be diverse, adaptable, and eager to learn and grow individual knowledge and skill sets. The ideal candidate has a depth of customer service experience coupled with a general technical mechanic background. Our bike technicians are motivated, flexible, critical thinkers with a strong ability to move fluidly between the social aspects of fitting bikes to customers and information sharing, to upkeep and organization of the bike program.
– Via Ferrata Guide: We thrive on sharing our passion for the outdoors with others and by giving them the skills and autonomy to do so on their own. A Zion Adventure guide is a powerful mixture of character, empathy, integrity, curiosity, and humility. You will be joining a diverse group of individuals from a variety of backgrounds all united by a common mission and a passion for experiential learning, education, and the outdoors. We are in a constant pursuit to better ourselves and the organization. Many of those who have moved here to be guides with us have found this chapter of their lives to be much longer than they expected, and are happy for it.
