Orion was born and raised in the Ridgway area and has been submerged in whitewater from a very young age. Both of Orion’s parents were raft guides and quickly shared the love for the river with their son. Growing up in Ridgway and southwest Colorado, Orion was given the necessary resources and mentors to be able to participate in multiple outdoor activities, ranging from hiking, to skiing, to biking, and of course rafting and kayaking. Orion spends as much of his time in the outdoors as possible, and in his opinion, has the greatest job in the world: being able to go whitewater rafting on a daily basis! Orion loves to share the adventure as it was shared with him.
