New Yorker Alex Bowen got his start in aerials at age 13 at Buffalo Ski Club’s wooden jump site. The upright tricks didn’t satisfy him for long and he performed his first back flip at 15.
Three podium results on the 2011 NorAm circuit convinced U.S. coaches to bring him up to the next level, where the top-level guidance has already paid off. The 2012 season saw Bowen reach a career-high fourth-place ranking in the NorAm standings with four podium finishes. He also tackled his first three World Cup competitions and came away with a top 20 result at Lake Placid.
The 2013 season was another solid showing for Bowen. He upped his World Cup competitions to six in the 2012-13 season and saw three top 20 results. Tack on a NorAm win and a silver medal at National Championships and it ended up being a career-best season for Bowen.
