Biography

This young gun made a name for himself in 2013 when he bagged a second place finish in halfpipe at The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series event in Copper, CO, before placing 7th at the X Games in Aspen. He finished the season as the 5th place ranked skier in the AFP halfpipe standings, and he’s carried that momentum through the 2013/14 season, thus far, with a podium at Dew Tour, a big win at Grand Prix Copper and another podium at the Grand Prix in Park City; that final performance a memorable (and emotional) one, indeed, as Blunck was overjoyed to haveĀ secured an Olympic berth. Aaron Blunck would go onto qualify last for the first ever men’s Olympic halfpipe final in Sochi, Russia, and scored a 79.40 in finals, bagging him a 7th place finish.
