'Girl on Fire' blazes to opening slalom win | Ski Racing Magazine
When Keely’s Ski Camp for Girls and Tecnica/Blizzard selected Vermont racer Karin Rand to receive the ‘Girl of Fire’ scholarship, they were onto something hot. The U16 from Cochran’s Ski Club opened up the season of Northern Vermont Council (NVC) racing with a 3.78-second win in Sunday’s (Jan. 12) slalom at her home hill. Yes, that’s nearly a four second margin of victory down two courses that each ran just over 40 seconds.
