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 their top-level guidance is already paying off. In his first full season on the World Cup in 2015, Bowen secured a surprise silver medal at the 2015 FIS Freestyle Ski World Championships in Kreischberg, Austria with a trick he had never done on snow. Two more top-10 World Cup finishes earned him the 2015 FIS World Cup Rookie of the Year title. Bowen continued to perform in 2016, landing a pair of top-10 finishes on home snow at Deer Valley Resort.
