Freeskier on the Move
My name is Tami Razinger and I am a freeride skier living in Stowe, VT. I graduated from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science. In college, I was a part of the UVM Freeskiing Team, where my passion from skiing grew tremendously and I was able to explore through Vermont terrain outside of groomed trails as well as compete in the Ski the East Freeride Tour. Last year, I competed out west for the first time and finished 4th at a 4* (the highest level) Freeride World Tour Qualifier (FWQ) in Crystal Mountain, Washington.
This winter, I plan on competing in all four stops of the FWQ 4* events out west. I am also filming a web series that will incorporate all aspects of skiing/competing and what it is like to be a female freeride athlete from the east coast. My Flyin Ryan Adventure Scholarship helped me pay for expenses as I travel for competition, and for my independent film project. I hope to reach a large crowd with my videos and inspire others to pursue their own dreams and adventures!
I had a great season last winter 2016-2017. I traveled to all of the FWQ 4* competitions out west and ended up in 1st in the last of the competitions in Crystal Mountain, Washington which was considered the finals. I ended up in 4th overall for the NorAm champs, 6th in the Americas FWQ women’s overall and 16th in the world FWQ women’s overall. I had a lot of fun traveling to all of the competitions and getting to know so many people in the industry.
This winter, I am moving to Jackson Hole to continue to pursue my competition goals, a move I have envisioned for over two years now. I am beyond excited for my new playground!
