Wonderful TMC Folks – my name is Brian TaintorВ and I’ve lived between Portland, ME and Jackson NH my whole life. I learned to ski in the Whites and spent my whole childhood alpine racing around New England. Since coming to Tufts and joining TMC I’ve started to telemark and jumped into the backcountry. I went on my first real backcountry trip with fellow TMCers and I’ve learned everything I know about touring through peer mentorship. I’m stoked to spend the next year bringing folks into the backcountry and onto tele skis for the first time and getting out into the wonderful Northeast backcountry as much as possible.
