Sarah Macgregor Raised in Colorado, Sarah started getting out to explore the Rocky Mountains as young as she could whether wearing running shoes, rock climbing shoes snowboard boots, river shoes, or crampons. Sharing her love of the mountains professionally since 2008, she currently specializes in instructing and guiding rock climbing, backpacking, 14ers, snowshoeing, splitboarding, and hut trips and has a special passion for incorporating yoga with adventure. She is a certified American Mountain Guide Association Single Pitch Instructor, Raft Guide, Wilderness First Responder, Yoga Teacher (with 400 hours of training,) and holds an AIARE Avalanche Level One certification. While guiding and teaching keep her life fulfilling, there is nothing that gets her out of bed in the morning with as much vigor as knowing she has a full day climbing objective in the Black Canyon or touring the backcountry on a powder day.

Ciara Low Originally from Australia, Ciara (pronounced Kyra) came to the states for college and has since adventured throughout the US and South America. She recently started working with Aspen Alpine Guides guiding rock climbing and hiking trips. she carries a Wilderness First Responder and Divemaster (though hard-pressed to put that to use in the mountains...). Ciara is inspired by people who constantly challenge themselves and those around them to push the boundaries of their comfort zone. That, and immersing herself in beautiful and inspiring places, are her favorite parts of being a guide.
