A Western Colorado native, Chase Bunting descends from the small town of Palisade, Colorado. His need for adventure started early with his love for sports and the outdoors. Growing up, Chase participated in many sports but it was always the personal freedom of various extreme sports that he embraced. During this time anything he could get his hands on was fair game. His success in many of these sports including snowboarding and skiing competitions, a BMX state championship and a long history of racing motocross and supercross pushed him to a fast paced lifestyle. Chase raced his dirt bike around Colorado through his high school years working against his schedule and injuries from the trade. If there was a starting gate you could bet he would be there. It was not until his decision to go to college at a small town university nestled in the middle of the Rocky Mountains that Chase’s life would change forever. He bought his first snowmobile to access backcountry snowboarding only to realize that he would hardly touch a snowboard again. The freedom of riding the Colorado backcountry took hold. Working hard during the summers battling wildfires, Chase saved money to fuel his passion in the winters. Backcountry technical riding quickly became his ambition and for the next 5 years, he did everything he could to get out on the mountain, even manipulating his college schedule to cater toward his riding.
After graduating, Chase decided it was time to push his limits on a sled, so he signed up for a trip with Burandt and the BBA team. Following that ride, Chase was given the opportunity to help around the shop, where his enthusiasm would not go unnoticed. His dream came true later that year when Chris offered him the opportunity to ride on the BBA Team. Chase’s hard work, desire, and appetite to ride, tailored with his competitive nature are a perfect match! Chase continues with his passion, riding alongside the BBA team all winter long, ambitious to push his limits and yours! Come ride with us!
