Karina’s Bio

Karina Jorgensen-Fullam

My name is Karina Jorgensen-Fullam and I am an 18 year old competitive freeride skier based out of Whistler, British Columbia. I have always loved skiing, but my love for the sport grew into a true passion the moment I discovered freeride. I have been competing in freeride skiing since 2014, and though I’ve endured three season ending injuries in that time, my passion for the sport has not wavered. This year I elected to take a year off between high school and university to focus solely on pursuing my passion for freeride skiing to challenge myself to the fullest extent and see what I am capable of as a result.
