Meet Scott – River Manager:
Scott is excited to return for his 7th season at Talkeetna River Guides as the T.R.G. River Manager. Scott trains our new guides how to navigate and narrate the rivers of the Talkeetna area. He brings a lifetime of teaching and outdoor experience to TRG to give our clients a more informed and memorable float. Scott is an Eagle Scout, has been a high school teacher, and is currently a ski instructor during the winter season at Alyeska Resort in Girdwood, Alaska. During his “off” season he has run rivers all through Alaska, Colorado, New Mexico, Costa Rica, and Laos. When he is not keeping TRG guides on their toes you can find him stand up paddle boarding, climbing in Nepal, skiing in Japan, or fixing up his van down by the river. Although not born in Talkeetna, Alaska Scott has never felt more home anywhere else.
