Aaron Blunck is a three-time U.S. Olympic halfpipe skier, X Games gold medalist and FIS Freestyle World Champion.
After sustaining six broken ribs, a broken pelvis, lacerated kidney and bruised heart and lung while skiing in in Switzerland, the most traumatic injury of Blunck’s career shook his wife and his family, and had him questioning if he could and would continue competing at the level he had become accustomed to.
A naturally gifted freeskier, Blunck has a unique mindset when it comes to preparing for the sport’s biggest competitions. His love of solitude, storm days and skiing with like-minded individuals are often his methods of choice. Although this may seem like a foreign training approach to some, his countless podium appearances over the years are a testament to his inherent ability and pure love for the sport of skiing. In The Bulldog, we hit the road with Blunck on a two-week, cross-country road trip, during which he recounts two-and-a-half years of ups and downs, while we discover the intricate details that make him tick, as told by his wife Morgan.
