Aspen native Alex Ferreira jumpstarted his freeskiing career with a bronze-medal performance on his hometown turf at X Games Aspen in 2014. Since then Ferreira has gone on to earn to earn two additional X Games medals--another bronze at X Games Aspen in 2015 and silver at X Games Oslo in 2016. In 2018, he took his game to a whole new level, winning the silver medal at the Olympic Winter Games.
Known for his contagious smile and strong work ethic, Ferreira has technical ability and amplitude that matches the best of them. He linked three double corks in his 2015 X Games Aspen run and at Oslo in 2016 he used four total doubles to earn the silver.
A good friend of fellow Aspen native and U.S. Freesking teammate Torin Yater-Wallace, Ferreira has sport in his blood--his father, Marcelo, is a former professional soccer player for Argentina's River Plate team. Ferreira was first a mogul skier with the Aspen Valley Ski Club, but says it was "all over" once he noticed park riding.
This born and bred Aspenite took to Aspen Highlands when he was three with his mom and dad. At five years old he became a member of Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club. He skied moguls at first, but eventually switched to halfpipe and the rest is history.
OFF THE SNOW
Ferreira is an outdoorsy guy and in the summer he enjoys cliff jumping, tubing, jumping on the trampoline, playing soccer, ping pong and hanging out at the beach. He also attends Westminster College, which keeps him busy between competitions.
