Aaron Blunck took the second World Cup victory of his career at the Park City Mountain Resort halfpipe World Cup on February 6th, throwing down what he himself described as the best run of his life to best the likes of Kevin Rolland, Ben Valentine, and a slew of freeski rippers in the a perfect Park City pipe.
Still only 19 years old, Blunck has five podiums in 16 FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup appearances, and has been been finding his way to the finals of some of the biggest competitions in the world since before he was old enough to drive.
While consistency once he has made it to those finals appearances has occasionally been a problem, Blunck’s masterful performance in Park City suggests that some age, experience and maturity may have him stepping out as one of the halfpipe elite sooner rather than later.
