Kate McCollum



Kate McCollum, originally from West Virginia, has been an Aspen native for over ten years. As an incredibly talented Class V guide, she knows her way around our rivers. Serving as an inspiration to our staff; Kate’s an unstoppable female force in a male-dominated trade. But don’t for one second buy into the talk – Kate can guide better than most men, and will prove it to you. If you’re fortunate enough to be in her boat, you’ll find yourself guided by a calm and clear head, focused on finding the best line possible. Kate approaches guiding with the care and focus she applies to all other areas of her life. This demonstrates just how much thought and talent she carries to each of our guests on the river. In her time off, you can find Kate hiking the valley’s most gorgeous trails with her family.
