Rory "Bushy" Bushfield is one of the celebrities featured in ABC's reality diving competition series "Splash."

Rory "Bushy" Bushfield, the 29-year-old extreme skiing air-hound from just outside Calgary, Alberta, has a very simple philosophy — get low, go big, and stomp. Refreshingly modest and personable, Rory lets his actions speak louder than his words, a trait he showcases in the impressive extreme skiing film segments he produces each season. He now resides in Squamish, British Columbia, where he shreds the backcountry on a daily basis, continually progressing his style and pushing the skiers around him.

In addition to filming award-winning ski segments with top film companies such as Teton Gravity Research, Matchstick Productions and Sherpas Cinema, Rory also recently joined the cast of Travis Pastranas' "Nitro Circus Live Tour," where he performs in front of sold-out audiences across the world.

A true outdoorsman, when he's not skiing or filming, Rory spends his days mountain biking, surfing, base jumping, building things, fixing things and flying his plane.

In 2011 he married his longtime girlfriend, fellow pro skier Sarah Burke. He proposed by spelling out "Marry Me Sarah" in rocks in a remote snow covered field outside of Whistler and flew Sarah over the field so that she could see it. Sarah was the best female freeskier of all time, a 4x Winter X Games Gold Medalist, and one of the main forces for Ski Halfpipe's inclusion in the 2014 Winter Olympics. She tragically passed away in January 2012 due to a fall in the halfpipe during training.
