Alex was born and raised in Park City, UT. His dad was a kicker in the NFL and his mom was an Olympic downhill ski racer. They put Alex on skis at age 2, then into gymnastics at age 8, and at age 12 he began to combine the two following the sport of free skiing. It was love at first sight. He began competing almost immediately and loved pushing his limits. He was the winner of a gold medal at the 2011 Winter X Games in the big air contest. The following week, he won the gold medal in slopestyle at the 2011 FIS Freestyle World Ski Championships. He's done well, and plans to continue pushing himself in all aspects of life!
