Expert Jackson Hole Whitewater Guides
Levi is Teton Whitewater’s resident Rockstar and Head Guide! He may look young, but he is returning for his seventh year guiding the Snake River. Ask Levi about his rock climbing, kayaking adventures, protein shakes and their importance, and playing the guitar. Levi is getting ready to commit to his first 8 year contract with Teton Whitewater, as soon as he finishes his degree from Utah Valley University, where he is studying to become a Marketing Genius. Look for Levi on the river, and ask him why our newest rapid is named after him!
Katrina has become the mascot of our company, as you will see her picture plastered on almost every vehicle and sign we own. She hails from Massachusetts and studied Music Therapy at Utah State University. She is one of our veteran rafters, working for TWW for 6 summers. Katrina knows some of the best stories on the river and will ensure that you have a great experience on the river.
Levi is from Roy, Utah. He graduated in Outdoor Recreation from Southern Utah University. During the off season he works in Ogden, Utah as a ski patrolman at Snowbasin. Levi is the quintessential “handsome shy” type, but when he gets on those oars, he opens up and gives you one of the best experiences on the Snake river. Levi loves mountain biking, climbing, kayaking, skiing, and traveling.
Jacy is the strongest of the Whitewater guides, able to bench press both of Levi Wiscombe’s arms. With her small frame and superior strength, she is able to flip a raft over in the water with just one hand and her flip line. Her fanny pack is full of first aide supplies, a beach ball and a parachute should the Champagne rapid decide to emerge. Jacy was the first guide to not only run the river but also run the landslide in 2011, while it was happening. She was later quoted saying that the mud and rocks were as smooth as Big Kahuna’s second wave. Jacy has chosen Teton Whitewater for a third year and will be sure to surprise us with more heroics and river stunts like no other female guide can.
Adam Jones is from RIVERton Utah! You could say that’s what brought him up here to the great old Snake River. Adam is one Teton WW’s best. He has been running the river for years, along with being a Sherpa in the off-season. This crazy combination gives him the advantage when it comes to tying knots, being in the wilderness and running the river. Some of Adam’s favorite things to do are climbing, laughing, river running, speaking Spanish and sun bathing. The strength in his fingertips alone, due to rock climbing, allow him to stay in the raft at all times, even if it has flipped upside down on a rapid. He is Teton Whitewater’s version of Spiderman with his nimble limbs and lanky figure. Make sure to ask him about the fish at Million Dollar Eddie.
Adventure Matt Pratt was born on the banks of the Snake River, he is the literal son of the river God. He is the reason that the Snake River is safe for families all over. Let’s just say that before him, there literally were snakes in the river. Recently he became the first person in all of the West to go whitewater rafting in a canoe while riding a horse. He is so talented that the horse was not harmed during the run. He is also the only person to jump out of a helicopter, land perfectly in the guide seat on the raft and still hit Big Kahuna perfectly thus getting launched right back into the helicopter. Despite his young age, he has mentored many adventure enthusiasts around the world, to name a few from last year he mentored Crocodile Dundee, Jeff Corwin and the Aborigines. Adventure Matt Pratt has graced us with another year at Teton Whitewater and while we are constantly learning from him regarding river safety, we also have the privilege to hunt local mountain lions and bears alongside this amazing American gem, who also speaks Spanish.
Sam “Sambo” Cottrell
Sam has been known to distract people’s view of the Tetons with his magnificently vivid eyes. Sam has been with Teton Whitewater for more than 375 days and counting. He is a thrill seeker and loves adventure, pushing himself to the limits, recording it all on his GoPro and is an avid business man. He is often seen on the back of a raft showing the rest of us how it’s done. His celebrity crush is Jennifer Aniston. Sam is really a one-of-a-kind guide, with many great qualities and values. He will ensure you have a fun trip, and always know what to do with your hands and feet during the ride. Sam’s goal this summer is to provide the ultimate nautical experience.
Brenton comes to us from Arizona, where all their rivers have dried up. Brenton enjoys long boarding, competitive video gaming, and snowboarding. Brenton is not new to Jackson as it is one of his families preferred vacation spots. If you are interesting in a guide who will provide an awesome time on the river, provide you with knowledge of Jackson and the canyon, then Brenton is the guide for you. Also, ask him about the Thai food in Jackson.
Arne is Teton Whitewater’s loveable manager/head honcho. Born on the banks of the Snake River, Arne loves kayaking, rafting, laughing, and singing interpretively. Something interesting about Arne is that he’s a real
Norwegian Viking! His favorite color is shiny and he’s never lost a tickle fight, ever. Arne is fluent in English, Chinese, and sarcasm, and has way more experience than you on the river. Yeah you!
