Mariah “MJ” GaneyCommunity Engagement Manager - Durango

After moving to Colorado at 18 to find an adventure that Texas couldn’t offer, I immediately fell in love with the way of life the mountains and the people in them offered. A handful of new hobbies and an insane amount of gear later(mostly backpacks if we’re being honest, it’s an addiction), I’ve settled into a life full of adventure and exploration like it was a snowboarding boot designed just for me.
On the weekends you can find me serving eats and pouring beer at Durango Brewing Company, and the rest of my time is spent growing my freelance photography business and hunting down a new adventure with friends.
I dabble in most things outdoors but among my favorite activities are running, backpacking, rock climbing, and snowboarding.
I am currently working towards a B.A. in marketing and business, with hopes of applying what I learn to my photography business.

Marmot, Deuter, Gnu, Patagonia, Black Diamond and Merrell are what overrun my gear corner.
