Guide since 2013: WA, ID, MT. Joined ROW in 2015. Growing up on the banks of the Spokane River in Otis Orchards, Washington, Miles was born to be a water guide, with some of his best childhood memories involving floating down the river with his family while feasting on pizza for dinner. When he’s not on the river, he’s hiking and climbing in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest or working as a ski patrol at Silver Mountain. He’s got a bachelor’s degree in Geography from Eastern Washington University and an Associate Arts Degree from Spokane Falls Community College, all complimented by life experience including rock climbing in Thailand and rafting the recovering sections of the White Salmon River.
