Ben Ferguson is one of those prodigy riders who astound the snowboarding scene with effortless skills and progression. He got his start at nine when Burton signed him to its Smalls Team. He's since graduated to the older pack of Burton riders, but he's no less progressive with his halfpipe and slopestyle capabilities.

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 in slopestyle at the Mammoth Grand Prix stop. Ferguson kept his momentum going with an incredible 2012 season, landing gold in halfpipe and silver in slopestyle at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games.

Ferguson was a boss at the U.S. Revolution Tour this season, taking a first and second place. He also made it into the top 10 at the Grand Prix.

BEN SAYS
Had fun snowboarding with my friends and I am excited for next season too.

FIRST TRACKS
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.

OFF THE SNOW
When Ferguson is off the slopes, he enjoys hanging out with friends, skateboarding, going to the lake or the river, fishing, and drawing.
