BIOGRAPHYNew 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 is already paying 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 in lake Placid.
I got more on snow jumping time than the past years, and with that gained a lot of experience. Eric Bergoust is a knowledgeable coach, and taught me many aspects of the sport that I had a hard time learning before.
