Young Ski Star Alex Schlopy is on a mission. Oakley’s team ripper, who broke out at Winter X Games 15 last season with a resounding Big Air victory, lead the charge at subsequent events with his stellar riding as the IOC considered Ski Slopestyle as an Olympic event. The IOC was convinced. Now Alex, after shredding park early season on home turf in Park City, began training at the USSA’s new facility: The Center of Excellence – to begin working toward his new goal. The Winter Olympics.
Alex Schlopy has been on a rampage. His breakout Winter X Games Big Air victory in Aspen last January was complemented by some huge victories at the FIS Freestyle World Championship and the Dew Tour. But when he’s not shredding on his skis, Alex keeps plenty busy. Take a peek at him throwing down in several sports back home in Utah and beyond during the Fall offseason (in his Oakley motocross, golf and other performance gear):
