About Alex

This Aspen native is known for his technical prowess and amplitude. He skied one of the best runs of his life at XG Oslo 2016, earning silver. The run included both rightside and leftside doubles before ending with a double down-the-pipe flatspin 900 Japan grab. In 2015, when he earned his second bronze in front of the hometown Aspen crowd, Alex gave an all-time great post-run interview that featured him proclaiming his love to everyone. He just missed the podium at Aspen 2016, finishing 4th with another strong performance. His father, Marcelo, who works for the Aspen restaurant Cache Cache, played professional soccer for Argentina's most successful soccer team, River Plate.
