    KORE Stories: The Bulldog feat. Aaron Blunck

    Aaron Blunck is a three-time U.S. Olympic halfpipe skier, X Games gold medallist and FIS Freestyle World Champion.

    After sustaining six broken ribs, a broken pelvis, a lacerated kidney, and bruised heart and lung while skiing in Switzerland, the most traumatic injury of Blunck’s career shook his wife and his family and had him questioning if he could and would continue competing at the level he had become accustomed to.

    He was told his recovery would take a minimum of six months before he could be back on snow. He was back on snow within two months. After only three months of recovery, Aaron placed 2nd at X-Games and a month later, 1st at the Aspen US Open Grand Prix.

    Go for the win

    The problem with a well-built ski is that if it's working perfectly, you probably won't even notice it. The same applies to a well-designed ski boot. It's so precise that you don't even realize it. That is the most important point. Don't think about the ski, the boot or any other piece of equipment, just focus on one thing - the finish line!
