"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". 

Stop by and say hi to Professional Snowboarder and artist, Ben Poechman any time betwween 11:00am - 6:00pm.
