At the age of 17, he won the World Juniors. He has also competed in slopestyle skiing before focusing on backcountry skiing and filmmaking. Bushfield married fellow freeskier Sarah Burke in 2010.

He has made more than 15 adventure movies, primarily focussing on backcountry skiing. He now markets a high-end dog food product. This is one cool dude.
