Fraser started skiing at the age of four and by the time he was 11 knew that he wanted to get on to a competitive pathway. “I loved the feeling of landing the best run you could put down and always wanted to chase that feeling,” he says. Based in Taupo, his family made the journey to ski at Turoa and at Auckland’s Snowplanet when ever possible and it was at Snowplanet that Fraser won his first freestyle competition.
