Andy Turnbull - Nordic Skis, Bikes & Inline Skates

With experience of over 30 years
in the skiing, biking, canoeing and camping industry, Andy is one of the guys that our customers are always asking for, particularly during the nordic ski season. In his early years in the business, Andy was a manager at the Dayton's Ski Shop (Yes, they had a ski shop). After a stint in management at Carson's downtown he was employed at Hoigaard's and has been here for about 16 years.

Andy is the official voice of Hoigaard's. His pleasant elocution welcomes you on the phone anytime you call us, providing you with store hours, directions and the latest sale information.

In Andy's opinion, if it's outdoors and non motorized, it's good. He grew up canoeing and camping, then started skiing in the 70's and nordic racing in the 80's. He's canoed the Boundary Waters and the sub arctic, paddled in many competitive canoe races and skied most nordic ski races in the midwest. In the winter, when he's not selling skis, he coaches the nordic ski team at Edina High School - grooming ski trails and young skiers. Off-season (for Andy, "off-season" is summer), his favorite toys are his solo race canoe, his bike and his rollerskis.  As long as Mother Nature keeps saying it's ok to play outside, Andy will cooperate.
