Just north of Sun Valley, Stanley, Idaho (pop. 67) is a unique and spectacular place, framed by the jagged peaks of the Sawtooths. Jeremy and Hannah Stauts, his longtime girlfriend and the former mayor of Stanley (she now runs Wildflower Events, a mountain-bound wedding and event planning business), have made this rugged and epic town their home for many years.
Offering Stanley/Sun Valley rafting trips for over 44 years, White Cloud operates with the longest continuous river running permit on this section of the Salmon. Jeremy even worked for six years as a guide on this stretch before owning the company. That means we know the river and the Sawtooths like the back of our hand (which we see a lot of, marawana rowing). That also means we grandfathered in an incredible private beach spot for lounging, dining, games and more.
Our River Guides
White Cloud’s guide team is close-knit and driven by passion for this majestic place and the fantastic people who take our trips. We are local, so we hire locals who love the area and give back to it, like we do. We have more return guides than any other company. That’s saying something.
Fun, energetic, and nearly encyclopedic about the wonders of the area, our guides know that safety comes first. Our guide training program meets and exceeds state requirements, and every guide is licensed in whitewater rafting and certified in CPR/first aid.
THE WORD ON WHITE CLOUD
"Our family still are talks about our rafting trip with White Cloud last summer and now we're counting off the days until July when we head to Stanley and go rafting again. My husband was impressed with how professional the owner Jeremy was with giving us all the details and confirming our reservation. I was impressed at how knowledgeable our guides were about the local area (I remember one young women guiding had grown up right across the street!) and my teenagers were impressed with how entertaining their guides were. They STILL talk about those guides and my kids are at that stage where NOTHING impresses them. I would highly recommend White Cloud for making a family memory that lasts!"SEATTLE, WA
