first of all, some one mentioned ava doesnt go to the royal gorge "that much". AVA dont do the gorge at all. if yur an asspiring #s guide you can expect to be there on your third year of guiding if you are on your shit. you really gotta think about your goals of raft guiding. are you in it for a couple summers??(go to WA,or noahs) are you in it for life(BJS, TAC, PT, AVA, kodi) personally I will admitt I work at ava. I trained there, I cant get away from that frikkin place cuz I get to drive wings and sotars everyday(plastic is the shit)with many fabulous guides. you will also find some of the best guides on the planet at other mentioned companies.
just like others mentioned in other threads, yah gotta figure out the differences from every company. if you want the honest truth I'll take the time to help you out.
If I wasnt sucked into AVA i would be at TAC or buff joes in no particular order.
I believe play is huge. play on the river that is.. every compny has slugs that guide a boat go get drunk right after work everyday and wake up the next morning to do it again. every company also has the gang that wants to fire it up every afternoon. most of what will help you decide is what you think of the manager.
