With style beyond his twenty years Ben Ferguson has quickly worked his way up into snowboarding's elite circle, nabbing magazine covers and podium results alike.
Ferguson made his mark in 2010 with a halfpipe win at the final Rev Tour stop of the season, and he stepped it up again in 2011 with a 10th-place finish at the Mammoth Grand Prix stop. Ferguson kept his momentum going with an incredible 2012 season, but it was the 2013-14 season that really put Ben Ferguson on the map.
Ben kicked off the Olympic season with a third-place finish at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain. He then continued to impress fans and judges alike, making finals at nearly every event of the season. His top results include fifth at X Games and another third at the final Grand Prix in Mammoth, narrowly missing the 2014 Olympic team. He then went on to finish the season strong with a fourth at the Burton U.S. Open at Vail.
In the 2015, Ben teamed up with younger brother Gabe to win the Red Bull Double Pipe doubles event in Aspen, CO showing his skills on tranny features as well as rails and jumps.
His father's passion for riding was what got him out on the snow, and Ferguson was six years old when he first got on 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.
