Aaron Blunk has been competing since he was 8 years old. When he was 10, he left the junior division, went to the open class, beat everyone and watched his much older competition leave the competition scene because he was so young and good. His career progressed to moving away from home to focus on the dream of being a pro skier and he’s made that dream come true. His story, along with some great Inappropriate Questions from fellow Olympian, Lyman Currier, make this a fun listen.
