Montana River Guides
The only rafting company based right on the Clark Fork River at the Alberton Gorge’s Entrance, Montana River Guides is a custom river outfitter with an established reputation for fun, professional river trips. Our staff’s attention to detail and ability to create the right trip for different groups of people is what has made our company the Gorge’s leading outfitter. Over the years Montana River Guides has provided river rescue and safety instruction for thousands of boaters, guides and rescue professionals from over 150 different agencies and organizations on whitewater rivers throughout Montana and the west. MRG introduced Riverboarding to Montana back in 1995 and continues to be the only Riverboard Guide Service in Montana and one of just a few in North America.
Aerie Backcountry Medicine
Based in Missoula, Montana, Aerie provides wilderness and rural medical training, risk management consulting and first aid supplies to over 2,000 students a year throughout the United States, Mexico and Central America. Led by our staff and guided by our Board of Advisors, we have courses for MDs, RNs/PAs/EMTs and outdoor enthusiasts with no prior medical training. We design all Aerie courses, from our 2-hour update on travel medicine through our two-month Wilderness Medicine Semester, with the understanding that individuals learn best when they are engaged in challenging, realistic scenarios led by professional educators who are leaders in the medical and rescue fields. With this philosophy, we train our students for difficult conditions and long-term patient care, where resources are limited and access to outside care is minimal.
