Sarah Linville grew up in Utah and learned to love the mountains at an early age. She attended college in Arizona and has a Geology degree, and continues to use this knowledge daily on the river. When she moved to Stanley, Idaho, she loved the Sawtooth Mountains immediately but also learned to love the river. She has been guiding on the Salmon River since 2012, and 2016 was her first season with MFRE. When not on the river, Sarah works full time for the Sun Valley Ski Patrol and gets into the surrounding backcountry as often as she can.
