Tom Peiffer spent his life chasing after identical twin brother Liam – a rivalry he now credits as being “developmentally essential” to helping him make it to the Freeride World Tour, where he debuted in 2019. Unseemingly Tom is pursuing a scientific background of pre-medicine, specifically focusing on medicinal Chemistry. Years of preparations landed Peiffer on the podium in Hakuba in 2020, and cemented his spot on the 2020/21season. Born in Salt Lake City, raised for four years in Switzerland and shaped by a youth spent on Vancouver’s North Shore competing and training with the Whistler Mountain Freeride Club, Tom is taking his understanding of commitment to a whole new level on some of the most infamous mountain faces in the world.
