For our last issue of the season we decided to again highlight one of our talented and inspiring readers. Also, this guy’s last name is “Turner,” which couldn’t be more appropriate for Snowboard Life right?

Snowboarding is Roger’s number-one priority and deliberate career choice. He’s been working in the industry since 1991, in the United States as well as Australia. Now he’s a supervisor at a major resort in Lake Tahoe, resulting in this right-place right-time photo. Heavy pow-turn Rog.

“On your next visit to the local mountain–cast off the burdens of conforming to a dying culture, ride without the attitude, it could well be the best day of your life,” writes Turner. Well said. Thanks for the photo and the inspiration, Roger, and keep the powder pursuit alive.
