During his 7th XG appearance at Aspen 2017, Crested Butte's Aaron Blunck used back-to-back switch doubles to earn Ski SuperPipe gold, his first X Games medal. He backed it up by winning the World Championships in Sierra Nevada, Spain, in March, and took a strong 2nd at the Dec. 2017 Dew Tour Breckenridge event. Very close friends with fellow X Games SuperPipe medalists and fellow Colorado natives Torin Yater-Wallace and Alex Ferreira; the trio travels together frequently.
- 7 XG Ski SuperPipe starts. Hadn't finished better than 7th before winning XG Aspen 2017.
- Winner, 2017 World Championships, Sierra Nevada, Spain
- 2nd, Feb. 2017 World Cup/Olympic test event South Korea
- 2nd, Dec. 2017 Dew Tour Breckenridge
