Who Are GuideGap Guides
GuideGap Guides are outdoor men and women who have been vetted and approved based on their knowledge and experience of the area and certain activities. Our guides can be guides, park rangers, wildland firefighters/hotshots, involved outdoor club members, veterans of the outdoor industry, or participate in outdoor organizations such as outward bound. Most importantly GuideGap Guides are EXPERIENCED and have the OUTDOOR EDUCATION to evaluate the questionnaire results and create trip reports based on traveler’s answers.
Hobbs is someone who not only knows her way around the outdoors, as a photographer with Kublai Productions, she knows the most beautiful spots. She has years of experience guiding, and grew up with the Wasatch Mountains of Utah literally in her backyard. She not only values the stunning views of the mountains in these parts. Her real love is for all of the critters and plants you will see while embarking on one of her recommended trips.
Rob calls the mighty San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado home. No matter what time of the
year it is, you can catch Rob outside. The San Juan Mountains offer endless opportunities for mountain
biking, hiking, climbing, and camping as the sun shines an average of 250 days of the year. Rob is
working towards being a climbing and mountain guide for the summer months and is currently a ski guide and avalanche professional in the winter months.
Sean has spent almost his entire life exploring the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and can still be found romping around the Northeast with rope, skis, and a deep connection to the area. As a climbing guide and outdoor educator Sean has been paying forward wonderful experiences gathered through a life in the mountains and woods of New England.
Lexie is happiest when her Chaco-ed feet are covered in dirt and tan lines. She moved west several years ago to pursue careers that would let her explore and teach outside through guiding and environmental education. She’s put down roots in many states since then, working and recreating in every state between Alaska and Arizona. She now calls Montana home because she can’t get enough of her wildlife neighbors and falling asleep in her tent under the biggest star-filled sky.
GuideGap and Our Guides
One of our missions is to help our Guides pursue their passions
What does that mean and how do we do that?
- When you purchase a trip report a significant portion of the proceeds go to individual Locals and their families.
- Our Guides have the opportunity to promote their favorite small town businesses within THEIR towns.
- Our Guides have a passion for the outdoors and a passion to help others explore the places they love. We see the big picture, the more positive outdoor experiences we can help create more advocates for our precious public lands
- The additional income and flexibility GuideGap provides helps our Guides continue their outdoor lifestyle, grow their families, open or maintain businesses, create college funds, purchase a new vehicle, or simply buy new gear and go on more adventures. We have heard their stories and are here to support them in their passion
