Welcome to Up the Creek Rafting

Our Story

Up the Creek Rafting, Inc. was started in 1997. Ryan and Molly met working as guides with larger rafting companies. After several years guiding crowded trips, they jumped at the opportunity to own the smallest company in 2010. Larger companies move hundreds of people down river per day. Guides work long hours, and the fun of the experience gets lost in the shuffle. Now with Up the Creek we can develop relationships with our customers. We're the only rafting company with owners actively involved in daily on river operations. Shortly after acquiring the business, Ryan and Molly were married, and now have a two year old daughter Delphi. In the off season Ryan works in the ski industry, and Molly is a teacher at a local public school. They enjoy hobby farming on a small acreage homestead on their time off river.

Rafting Ryan, Molly, and Delphi invite you to join us for a trip on the river. We have been sharing our passion of river running with locals and visitors for over ten years. Give us a few hours of your time, and we'll offer you memories for a lifetime.

We've all been up the creek, now let's go with a paddle!
