MEET AND GREET WITH BEN POECHMAN
"My name is Ben Poechman, I’m 28 years young, I grew up on a farm in Southern Ontario, but I’ve been living in Whistler, BC for the last 9 years. Snowboarding is my number one passion, however I am also an artist under the preferred mediums of acrylic paint and stone sculpture. Living in Whistler I am constantly inspired by the picturesque landscapes & community of like minded individuals that call this place home. Thanks to the support of The North Face, and my other sponsors Vans, Capita, Union, Dragon, The Circle & Stance I have the opportunity to pursue my dreams and hopefully inspire others to do the same".
