Alex Hall: Pro Skier


Alex Hall has the world in the palm of his hands. In only a few years, Alex has gone from an up-and-coming Swiss kid to arguably the best American Slopestyle skier... What's different about Alex is his basketball player height and the hunger he brings to the table. The best part about Alex is that he is a throwback… He’s the X Games Gold winner in Real Ski, in Slopestyle, and in Big Air but he always makes sure that he’s filming for something. And he's just getting started.
