Meet Co-Owner Justin Hachman. Originally from Southern Ontario, he has made his home in the majestic Robson Valley. A world traveler, Justin has guided in Japan and Canada and kayaked and surfed in Wales. He has found the best of all adventure sports in the Valley with its unparalleled access to amazing whitewater in the summer and skiing in the winter. In 2022 Justin became a partial owner of Stellar Descents so he could continue to do what he loves the most, which is bringing people into the wilderness and showing them what joy adventure can bring them.

Meet Co-Owner Reta Boychuk. She is an all around whitewater paddling enthusiast that you can find standing up where others may choose to sit down. Reta dove into river life as a raft guide in 2013 and has spent many years on the water teaching, paddling and guiding in almost every craft you can imagine. She is a woman of many passions with the energy to tackle them all. During the summer months when Reta isn’t bringing the stoke to the Stellar Base, you will find her guiding for her own company CANRVRSUP, teaching Swiftwater Rescue for Raven RSM or trying to squeeze in a multi-day trip down a new river.
