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.
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.
