During the final days of 2015, it’s most likely that the majority of athletes that were competing at X Games Aspen 2016 were riding icy halfpipes and parks in between high altitude gym sessions, eating meticulously balanced meals, hydrating, etc. Halfpipe phenom Ben Ferguson was riding deep, light powder with his family and friends at Baldface lodge.
With a hop, skip, and a jump in the form of a long drive, a border crossing, and heli bump, Ben Ferguson brought a stacked crew up to the legendary lodge in interior BC to ring out the year.
Greeted with a speech from Jeff Pensiero, we were all told we were “at the right place at the right time.” Turned out he was dead right and the following days were filled with some of the finest powder laps any of us had ever had. The learning, training, healing, and laughing that went down up there will never be forgotten. The following photos tell the stories.
