Alex Beaulieu-Marchand may be a relative newcomer on the international scene for ski slopestyle but is also a top contender in the new Olympic event.
He competed in his first FIS World Cup in September 2012, finishing fourth in Ushuaia, Argentina. He moved onto the World Cup podium for the first time in January 2013 when he won bronze at Copper Mountain, Colorado. After a disappointing result at his first FIS World Championships in 2013, Beaulieu-Marchand finished fourth at the world championships hosted by the Association of Freeskiing Professionals.
In December 2013 Beaulieu-Marchand finished second at the competitive Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships in Breckenridge, Colorado.
Getting into the Sport: Started skiing at age two… Got into slopestyle when he was 12… Grew up in a family of skiers, but started slopestyle when a friend skiing the park inspired him to do more… Odds and Ends: Nickname: ABM… Enjoys surfing and going on adventures… Studying business online through Athabasca University as a part-time student… Likes to buy locally made souvenirs during his travels… Favourite motto: There is no limit! Don’t let anyone put one on your goal!
