An Idaho native, Marty is one of our most accomplished kayakers. He and his wife Melissa (our CANYONS Reservations Manager) both graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelors Degree in tourism, travel and recreation. Full of energy, Marty developed and operated a non-profit youth kayaking program for several years, has spent winters as Ski School Director, and now owns his own company for guided back country ski trips and overnight yurt adventures near McCall. His company, Payette Powder Guides, was featured in Men’s Journal as one of the top pics for “must do” adventures. In 2015, Marty was honored as ‘Recreation Guide of the Year’, by the Idaho Outfitters & Guides Association. His joyful personality conveys his great passion for playing and working in Idaho’s great outdoors.
