Ramos to finish season on World Cup Tour

Mogul skier Travis Ramos is performing like he wanted to before the Olympic Games.

After being bypassed by the U.S. Olympic Team, the 18-year-old South Lake Tahoe resident has been one of the hottest U.S. bump skiers over the past few weeks.

Consequently, U.S. coaches have informed Ramos that he’ll accompany gold medalist Jonny Moseley and the rest of the American team to the final four World Cup stops in Europe. The World Cup events are Feb. 28-March 1 at Chatel, France; March 5-7 at Meiringen, Switzerland; March 10-11 at Hundfjallet, Sweden; and March 13-15 at Altenmarkt, Austria.

Starting with a seventh-place finish in a World Cup stop Jan. 30-Feb. 1 in Breckenridge, Colo., Ramos has started to find the consistency he was in search of before the Winter Games.

“Competing in World Cup events has been his design from the beginning of the year along with making the Olympic team,” said Reve Ramos, Travis’ dad.

At a Nor Am competition last weekend at Fortress Mountain in Alberta, Canada, Ramos placed third in dual moguls and fourth in a regular mogul contest.

U.S. teammate Chris Hernandez, of South Lake Tahoe, also participated at Fortress Mountain. Ramos, Hernandez, Brooke Ballachey, Cristie Tibbetts, Travis Woodcock and Travis Cabral are all expected to compete this weekend in a Nor Am at Bogus Basin, Idaho.
