Meet the Owners

We are proud to have been voted Pagosa’s best rafting company and river guides.

Owners Tobi and Alison Rohwer fell in love on a river trip in 2004, got married in 2008, and took over Pagosa Outside in 2009. They bring years of experience, a wealth of knowledge, and a young family’s enthusiasm to what has become the fastest growing raft company in the area.

Tobi worked as a whitewater guide for 15 years, amassing over 25,000 miles on rivers all over the West and Alaska. He has worked with many industry leading whitewater outfitters on some of the most difficult commercially rafted sections of river in the US, but the Piedra river is still his favorite whitewater run.

After finishing her studies in wildlife biology at the University of Georgia, Alison moved to Colorado to pursue her degree and was swept off her feet by the enthusiastic river guide who would soon be her husband. She supports Tobi’s rafting dreams by working as an environmental consultant for Ecosphere Environmental by day and the behind-the-scenes wizard for Pagosa Outside by night.  Without her “real job” to support them, Pagosa Outside wouldn’t be possible.

Our goal as owners is to share our love of Pagosa and show you why we decided to make this place home for our family.
