New to U.S. Snowboarding in 2014, Eric Beauchemin has been hooked on snowboarding since he was a kid.
His first time on a board was a family affair. Beauchemin says, “I visited my grandparents in Pennsylvania for Christmas when I was 12 years old and my cousin Michael asked me if I wanted to try snowboarding with him. We went to the local mountain and ever since then I’ve been hooked on it.”
When he and his family went back to Michigan “we started riding on the weekends, then bought a season pass a couple years later and started riding every day after school,” he adds.
It didn't take him long to contract a passion for slopestyle which lies in creativity and smooth, stylish runs.
With appearances at all the major contests around the globe, it is likely we will soon be seeing his name up on top.
In the off-season, Beauchemin enjoys visiting his friends back in Michigan but stays most of the time at his parent's home in Pennsylvania to wake surf the lake, kicking the soccer ball around or to skate.
