It’s a tale as old as time.
A park skier makes it to the highest level of their respective discipline and then transitions into big mountain/freeride/backcountry skiing for their second act. It’s a natural career path at this point.
Such is the case with Aaron Blunck, who appears in the short film by Forecast Ski Magazine below.
Blunck competed in the men’s halfpipe at the 2014 Winter Olympic games in Sochi at just 18 years old.
Loved this quick hitter from Forecast Ski Magazine!
Forecast Ski Magazine: “This past March, we saddled up with Rob Heule for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming to corral with Aaron Blunck, Luke Miele and Max Martin for some spring skiing shenanigans, but were met with a wintertime bounty during Heule’s first pilgrimage to The Cowboy State.
