With style that sets him apart from the rest of the crowd, Ben Ferguson has quickly worked his way into snowboarding's elite circle, nabbing magazine covers and podium results alike and making his first Olympic team in 2018. A two-time "winner" of Danny Davis' Peace Park event ("judged" by fellow riders), Ferguson is a favorite amongst his fans and peers.
His father's passion for riding was what got him out on the snow, and Ferguson was six years old when he first strapped into a snowboard. A sticker on the front of his board showed him which side was supposed to face downhill and, after some initially trying moments, he was hooked.
OFF THE SNOW
When Ferguson is off the slopes, he enjoys mountain biking, hanging out with friends, skateboarding, going to the lake or the river, fishing and drawing.
