Raymond grew up skiing at Mont Saint-Sauveur—she started ski racing at five years old—but her passion, starting at the age of seven, was diving. She competed at an elite level for 11 years. In 2006, in between school and diving, she took a trip to Whistler, where Frank was living with a crew of freeskiers from Québec, people who lived and breathed skiing. Raymond had always enjoyed skiing, but in Whistler, she fell in love. She never took her flight home.
