You just can’t keep Trista in one place. When she’s not studying Spanish at MSU, she’s often galavanting all across the world with her ukulele in tow. Hiking during the summer, visiting farmers markets, and eating an absurd amount of vegetables are just a few of the things that occupy this nomads time.…

You are on your first cup of coffee and this guy has already ran 5 miles, cooked a gourmet breakfast on his MSR stove, washed his car and BRUSHED HIS TEETH! Ryan is athletic, friendly and always ready to rock! A degree in Outdoor Adventure Leadership made for a smooth transition into zip guiding.

You may be asking “who’s that guy wandering around on the ground while we zip?” That’s Kris! A photographer in Breckenridge, CO in the winter, this guy shreds on his snowboard and documents how good it looked! Kris helps us all keep the memories at YZ by snapping those pearly whites in zipping action! He is also an awesome climber and musician.

He’s easy to smile at 😉

For Montana Whitewater he has been: a shuttle driver, a zip line guide, a wood chopper, an errand boy, a raft guide, a cook, a zip line builder, a mechanic, should we go on? Who knows what he does in his free time because it seems he doesn’t have any!
