Alpacka Raft

Alpacka Raft is a community of genuine, self-reliant and creative eccentrics, enthusiastic about unique adventure and passionate about their product. The first Alpacka packraft was built in basement in Chugiak, Alaska in fall 2000. Since then, Alpacka has consistently pushed the boundaries of design, reliability, advanced materials, and offers an established infrastructure for customer service that allows for quick and easy repairs or upgrades. Every Alpacka Raft packraft is manufactured by hand in Alpacka’s factory in Mancos, Colorado. Find out more at www.alpackaraft.com.

Four Corners Guides

With 50+ years collective experience in backcountry adventures and almost as much in the outdoor industry, Steve “Doom” Fassbinder and Lizzy Scully know what it takes to live and play in the world’s wildest areas. Out of a desire to share their passion with others, they created Four Corners Guides. Obsessed with adventuring, it only made sense for them to pursue a dream they both shared of running a base camp, called Scullbinder Ranch, and adventure guide service together, with Steve the head “Bikeraft Guide” and Lizzy running the business. The couple thrives on sharing the wild, remote places they know and love and the challenging experiences they regularly have with friends, family, and now, with you, Four Corners Guides’ guests.
