Waterville Valley BBTS alum Dylan Ferguson is featured in a Powder Magazine story…
When Dylan Ferguson moved to Utah at 18 to pursue freestyle aerials and a freeski film career in 2006, he appeared to be treading a thin line between notoriously touchy parties. But he never even attempted to pick sides of that line. Instead, he erased it, becoming a fixture on the U.S. Freestyle Team and member of the 4bi9 freeski crew
“I don’t want to just be known as a certain type of skier,” says Ferguson. “I want to be an all-around guy.”
And so far, he’s done just that. The Amesbury, Massachusetts, native, trains full time with the U.S. Freestyle Team and films segments with 4bi9, the same group that helped launch LJ Strenio and Tom Wallisch.
The 23-year-old got his start out of New Hampshire’s Waterville Valley at age 7, when he enrolled in the freestyle program and met Nick Preston, Director of Freestyle Programs at Waterville Valley Academy.
“[Dylan] was small and kind of shy,” says Preston, who coached Olympian Hannah Kearney. “Still, right off the bat you could see he was very talented.”
