Originally from Vermont, Taylor grew up hiking and snowboarding the Green Mountains of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. After two years of living in Boston post-college he decided he could not take another moment of living in the city and got a job for Power Engineers and moved to Idaho in 2017. He has spent pretty much every weekend hiking, backcountry snowboarding, or climbing since moving out here. As of the summer of 2019 he calls his truck and whatever trailhead he’s parked at his home – all other seasons he usually lives in a house in Ketchum. In the summer of 2018 he hiked all the Idaho 12ers. He is now working on all the 11ers and whatever out of state mountains catch his interest.
