Eric Beauchemin has been hooked on snowboarding since he was a kid growing up in Michigan. Eric climbed the ranks of regional snowboarding and rode his way to the big leagues with a breakout performance at the 2012 World Snowboarding Championships in Oslo, when he finished just shy of the podium in fourth. Now as part of the U.S. Snowboarding slopestyle crew, he is continuing to progress his riding.

The 2013 season landed Beauchemin in the top ten at nearly every event he entered. He carried that momentum into the 2014 season, earning podium results in Pamporovo, Bulgaria and earning two third places at the Pamporovo Freestyle Open and the second Europa Cup. He stood on the podium at five out of the last six events of the season and looks forward to bringing a new bag of tricks into the 2015 season.

ERIC SAYS
The Olympic qualifiers were hectic. I realized that not going to the Olympics made me so much more motivated and a better rider. I think that was the best thing for me. Now I have a whole different mentality to keep pushing myself. That’s why I came back at the end of the year and had a bunch of good results and I’m stoked.

This season was a good time and I started to progress my snowboarding more and more, and I can’t wait for next season to go all in and see what happens.

FIRST TRACKS
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 says.

OFF THE SNOW
“I like to visit my friends back in Michigan from time to time. Most of the summer I go back to my parents home in Pennsylvania and wake surf on the lake. Kicking the soccer ball around, skating and playing Xbox live is a good time.”
