Turner grew up in Lincoln, Vermont, on the west slope of the Green Mountains. His family skied at nearby Mad River Glen, the mountain responsible for Turner’s passion for skiing. He began in the race program, later transitioning to the freeskiing program at MRG, where nearly all of his coaches were ski racers. No matter where he skied, it was the technical foundation instilled by his race coaches that was most essential to his progression as a skier. After high school, Turner spent four years attending Colorado College and reveling in the huge steep terrain of the West. He has been in Jackson since 2018, and his love for the sport continues to grow. Turner revered his coaches growing up and is grateful for the enormous impact they had on his relationship with skiing. It has been a privilege getting to pay that forward to the next generation of rippers, and he can’t wait for another season with the JHSC!
