Skiing/athleticism is in the genes for the 21-year-old Alex Schlopy. The Park City native's mom, Holly Flanders, is a two-time Olympian and three-time World Cup downhill winner, and his father, Todd Schlopy, was a football placekicker. Young Schlopy is no slouch either. He won X Games Aspen Big Air gold in 2011 as a rookie, and he wowed again at Aspen 2013 when he went for an incredible 1980 (although he crashed). When Schlopy is on, his tricks tend to be loftier and more polished than others. 2015 is his 5th X Games, and he will compete in both Big Air and Slopestyle.
- 2015 will be Alex's 5th X Games. He owns a Big Air gold from his rookie year in 2011 but hasn't competed since X Games 2014. He won the 2014 Grand Prix in Park City but missed qualifying for the 2014 US Olympics. Alex's mother, Holly Flanders, is a two-time Olympian and three-time World Cup downhill winner. His father, Todd, briefly played in the NFL.
