Alexander Hall, a 23-year-old from Park City, Utah, representing Team USA, is making a name for himself in the Big Air Competition this Olympics. After landing five full rotations, an 1800 on his first run this Olympics, he just qualified for finals, which will take place this Wednesday, February 9th. 

Blowing minds at the X Games a few weeks ago, this young athlete pulled a 2160 and is considered one of the top competitors in both Slopestyle and Big Air Competition. Before dominating at the X Games, Hall won the Slopestyle World Cup in Mammoth, CA. After winning this event, he moved on to take 1st in the X Games Big Air Competition and 3rd in both the X Games Knuckle Huck and Slopestyle Event. 

Big Air Skiing is making its Olympic debut this year. This event is rapidly evolving, and Hall is right there with it. Both stoke and competition are high as competitors pull bigger and better tricks this Olympics. 

“I think people for sure we’re saving some tricks (for the Olympics),” Hall admits. “I think most of the tricks people are doing today they did the last couple of days in practice,” Hall said in an interview

Tune in to see Hall compete in the Big Air Finals this Wednesday, February 9th. The first run is at 11:00 am second 11:22, and the third at 11:45. You can also watch more from him on Monday, February 14th, in the Men’s Slopestyle Qualifications at 12:30 and 1:30.
