Scott Phillips

Growing up in Colorado, Scott developed a lifelong passion for the outdoors. An avid skier, mountaineer and paddler, Scott has spent much of his life chasing the next adventure. After graduating from CU-Boulder in 2001, Scott was called to the ultimate adventure and joined the US Army. For the better part of the next decade, Scott served in various leadership capacities as an Airborne Ranger Infantry Officer deploying to combat on numerous occasions in support of the Global War on Terror. After Honorable Discharge, Scott followed his passion once again moving to the Vail Valley of Colorado. He explored the mountains and rivers as a backcountry/rafting guide in the summers and worked as an on-mountain risk management professional for a major ski resort operator during the winters. This experience renewed Scott's appreciation for the backcountry, introduced him to the guiding profession, and provided a unique perspective on adventure travel/tourism.

Scott truely believes that he's found his dream job as the 4th owner of The World Outdoors, and looks forward to sharing adventures and making memories with you!

Bill Marriner

While growing up in a small Nebraska farming community, Bill first developed his love for the mountains on his family's summer vacations to the Colorado Rockies, Yellowstone and the Black Hills of South Dakota. He attended the University of Colorado in the early 1970s and spent many a weekend exploring the back roads and trails of his adopted state. Following receipt of his MBA from the University of Chicago in 1978, the Rockies were again calling and Bill returned to Boulder to pursue a career in technology. During 24 years as a chief financial officer and later CEO in the data storage industry, Bill spent much of his free time camping and hiking in the national parks of the West. Bill owned and operated The World Outdoors for 12 years and currently contributes to trip development, guest relations and certain operational areas of the business. Bill enjoys the opportunity to share his passion and experience with others while staying physically active and traveling to some of the most beautiful and wondrous spots on earth.

Sherry Marriner

Sherry has been in the travel industry for 25 years, having owned and operated her own travel agency in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After her three kids grew up and left home she closed shop and moved to Boulder to get out from behind her desk. She found The World Outdoors, her new place to work and feel at home. Her goal now when she is guiding one of our trips is to help create a sense of newness, to find adventure and to help everyone feel the spirit of the outdoors. She supports our guests in their new experiences and tries to send them home with memories, moments, and possibly some new meaning in their often busy and hectic lives, and to make new friends along the way.

Eric Wagner

Eric was born and raised in Colorado. He developed an early passion for wildlife viewing, fishing and exploring in the mountains. He spent most of his adolescent years mountain biking, 4-wheeling and back-packing the Rockies. In the off season, Eric can be found snowboarding in CO or surfing in Central America. While pursuing his degree from the University of Colorado in International Affairs, Eric has explored many employment options from park ranger to bartender but feels that he has found his niche in guiding. An inquisitive person by nature, he enjoys sharing interesting facts about ecology and helping people surpass their own perceived limitations. If you have never jumped in a cold alpine lake just for the rush, Eric will be more than happy to accompany you. More than anything else, he enjoys making guests laugh and will do or say just about anything to that end.
