Graham Turnage

Graham grew up in the ole’ East coast, playing outside non-stop.  After graduating from high school he moved to Montana to chase snow and attend Montana State University.  He received a B.S. in Physical Geography/Earth Sciences and continued his ski bumming career, which led to 16 seasons of ski patrolling and snow safety work at Bridger Bowl.  A couple of avalanche dogs and several skin tracks later, he now lives in Taos with his lovely wife Emily and their yellow lab, Erna.  In the summer months you will find the three of them romping around the hills on mountain bikes.  Graham is thrilled to be in Taos this winter, and would love to share a skin track with you anytime.
