Welcome to our 2012 Staff!

On March 1st, thirteen fantastic NEW staff members descended upon the Zion Adventure Company loft to begin their lives here in Zion as new ZAC team members. Over the past two weeks, these individuals have morphed into an amazingly cohesive team as they have explored Zion National Park and their roles here at ZAC. Our new team members come from an impressive variety of backgrounds and locations, from New York and Washington State to the Czech Republic! If you’re in town anytime soon, stop into the shop and meet some of the new staff. Ask them lots of questions about the Park, the Zion Narrows, or our guided trips… you might be surprised at how much they already know. If you are a long-time Zion visitor, feel free to share any hints and secrets you might have learned from our staff in the past. We give them everything we’ve got, but our clients are always our best teachers!

Now Hiring Multi-Sport Lead Guides for 2011 – 2012 Seasons

Celebrating our 15th anniversary has been non-stop this year. From our private celebrations on February 14th (ZAC’s birthday) to extraordinary responses from our much-loved clients each day. Thanks to everyone who has celebrated with us so far, and all of you who plan to visit us soon. One of the great gifts we have enjoyed over the years has been perennial and sustainable growth. This year in particular, we have seen some extraordinary leaps and bounds in guided trip requests and bookings. Canyoneering, climbing, and biking have all been over the top, and it has been both challenging and incredibly fun to help so many have so much fun here in Zion. We have always taken great pride in being Zion National Park’s premiere (i.e. first) guide service and outfitting source. As in our infancy, we still lead the way today, with an incredibly deep commitment to learning and growing. And when we talk about “learning and growing,” we mean we’re working on EVERY aspect of our business, doggedly improving our products, techniques, staff lifestyles and earnings, customer experiences, vehicles, buildings and grounds, website, and more. We are innovators who follow our senses, which has lead us to a very … Continue reading

ZAC Spring Training: Preparing to Give You Our Very Best

When I think about what training means to me, I feel an immense urge to smile. In many places, training is a stressful endeavor – here, not so much. That’s not to say there is nothing stressful about ZAC training, but everyone shares the process, which helps us make the most out of our time together. No one is out of the loop, so to speak. Our managing partners, multi-year staff, and new team members all sit down together to hash out how to make this place great for customers and each other. Part of that process is identifying similarities and differences between us all, but the most important part is forming relationships with one another. Our group at Zion Adventure Company is unique, in that we are all friends. When I got the assignment to put together a video highlighting moments in our training, I was psyched. Training is something I look forward to. We spend time talking about ZAC philosophy and shop duties, then we go outside… TO PLAY! Training this year involved canyoneering, climbing, biking, hiking, and fording the Virgin River in dry suits. Obviously, however, not everything is fun and games… One of the most amazing … Continue reading
