AVA Rafting & Zipline is Colorado’s premier adventure guide. We specialize in creating unforgettable outdoor experiences, and rely on team members who are enthusiastic and service-oriented to provide our guests with the best adventures in Colorado. Born in 1998 in the heart of rafting country, AVA is celebrating 20 years of guiding in the Colorado outdoors. We may have started as a rafting company in the Arkansas Valley, but 20 years later, we are more than rafting — we are the outdoors. In addition to world-class whitewater rafting, AVA is Colorado’s go-to provider of ziplining, guided via ferrata tours, rock climbing, fly fishing, horseback riding and more.
As a member of the AVA Rafting & Zipline team, you will be surrounded by a group of like-minded individuals, all passionate about the outdoors. We proudly boast the best guides in the business, thanks in part to our thorough training and exceptional management team. With AVA Rafting & Zipline, it is our number 1 goal that you feel confidence and pride as you provide our guests with incredible outdoor experiences. We are a group of passionate outdoor folks, proud of what we do, and we love growing the AVA family. Our season generally runs from May until September, and we staff for that time. A few late season and year-round positions are open as well.
At AVA Rafting & Zipline, we pride ourselves in being the best in our industry. How do we pull it off? It starts with our guides. We have the most experienced raft guides in Colorado. Thinking about joining us in guide school? Well, you will receive 3 times the state requirement of river training in AVA’s guide school. Ziplining more your thing? Well, as innovators of the industry, we put a lot of stock in our Zipline Guides, so you’ll go through extensive training to become an old pro with our unique course, which features exciting elements such as a 50 foot free fall!
So, why work for the rest when you can work with the best?
It might be a cliche, but work hard, play hard is a driving force with us at AVA Rafting & Zipline. In addition to great parties and events throughout the season, our end-of-the-season party is a yearly favorite of our guides. Want to see what happens when over 70 adventure guides are let loose in downtown Denver, specifically at a Colorado Rockies baseball game? Well, you’ll have to join us to see!
