Shaun Raskin

Shaun has been ripping it up hard for years now, competing in the Tele extremes and now cat ski guiding and teaching avalanche courses. Check out her blog: Shaunraskin.com

Where are you from, when did you begin skiing and telemarking, where do you ski most now?

I am originally from New York. I began skiing when I was 2 years old. Began tele when I was 18. I ski Alta and the Canyons during big pow days, otherwise somewhere in the Wasatch Backcountry.

What are your favorite boots and skis?

Rossignol Systems or the RC 112 when I find myself pointing it down big AK style terrain. And obviously the Scarpa T-Race is the boot of choice.

What do you like about our bindings?

Axls are the most active and aggressive binding I have ever ridden. No matter what condition or terrain the binding keeps my skis right under me so I can stomp landings and ride any line hard.

What do you like to do for fun when youre not skiing?

Climbing, Mountain Biking, listening to good music, drinking good beer, and just kicking it with good people.
