Park City local and all around madman, Alex Schlopy, just won the skiing big air event this weekend at the X-Games. Throwing down some of the most technical and stylish double corks resulted in Schlopy taking home his first ever X-Games gold medal. Schlopy has been killing it on the home front for the past few years and now he has stepped up his game tremendously and it has been paying off. Keep an eye out for young Alex as he will be competing at the Dew Tour Toyota Championship this month, February 10-13rh at Snowbasin Ski Resort.
