Fast & Loose – Episode 2 with Aaron Blunck
Fast & Loose Ep. 2: Aaron Blunck
First full week of 2021 is in the books, and and so is the 2nd Episode of our new IG Live Series, “Fast & Loose”. Host Adam Jaber, from The Out of Bounds Podcast returns to give you another behind the scenes look at the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team and their athletes.
This week’s guest is Aaron Blunck, of the U.S. Freeski Pro Halfpipe team. The interview was live on our Instagram at 7pm EST on Friday 1/8. But if you missed it, not to worry, The Snow Report has you covered!
A bit about Aaron
Aaron hails from Crested Butte, Colorado and is in his 7th year on the U.S. Ski Team as a Freestyle Half-pipe skier. He’s a two-time Olympian, X-Games Medalist, and two-time World Champion. And he’s still only 24 years old!
But, here at Fast & Loose we want to know about more than tricks and turns, we want to know who Aaron really is. In this episode, he and Adam discuss his progression from half-pipe into the backcountry. They also touch on the physical and mental impact of injury. Why do he and Torrin Yater-Wallace keep cooking their chicken overly crispy? And what exactly are the Kimbo Sessions? Find out for yourself in the episode!
Enjoy the show!
More to come!
