A River For Everyone.
Chinook Rafting is a small, locally owned and operated whitewater rafting company based in Banff, Canada. We are proud of our reputation for fun, informative rafting trips on the Horseshoe Canyon (Bow River) and Kananaskis river in Western Canada. Chinook Rafting strives to offer rafting trips of the highest standard, so you know you’ll be surrounded by happy clients and fun-loving, professional colleagues. Not to mention world-class mountain scenery and two beautiful rivers.
At Chinook Rafting we do expect all of our staff to give 110% effort at all times. We want our guests to receive the very best experience possible, one that they will remember for years to come. You, our valued staff, are essential to that goal. We strive to be approachable and fair throughout the season, and always adhere to the motto Work Hard, Play Harder. We will expect you to work conscientiously and complete every task to the best of your ability; however, we want you to have fun too! We offer staff parties and gatherings throughout the summer, and you’ll find that you’re never short of an adventurous mate or two for exploring the mountains on your days off. We also offer ongoing training and personal professional development opportunities, and are always supportive if you are looking to advance and progress within the field of adventure tourism. We hope that this has sparked your interest. If you are a team player with a positive attitude and are looking for a job in the outdoors this summer then we would love to hear from you.
We're happy to tell you more about our employee perks after you reach out to us.
Our ideal candidates are enthusiastic outdoor team players, with or without prior rafting experience. Can you think on your feet, adapt to rapidly changing situations, communicate clearly with your team mates, and maintain a cheerful and positive attitude? If so, we want to hear from you!
Our guides take rooms in rentals available in the towns of Canmore and Banff. Seasonal options are normally available, and we can provide resources to help you connect with landlords and find a suitable place.
Plenty of possibilities to go hiking, climbing, and paddling in a world class mountain environment. Internationally recognised sites like Lake Louise and the Athabasca Glacier are nearby. Banff and Canmore have fun options for the evening, everything from frisbee golf and barbeques by the river to local breweries and lively nightclubs. Spend your evenings and days off enjoying the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains.
