Alex Hackel grew up in the greater Boston Area and calls Sunday River his home resort. He gained inspiration to become a freeskier when he met Simon Dumont there at the age of 11. Fast forward nearly a decade and Hackel is following in his childhood heroes' footsteps, quickly rising the ranks of professional skiing. 

Hackel put down a couple of notable finishes in 2016: fourth at the Mammoth Mountain stop of the Revolution Tour and second at the Aspen Snowmass Freeski Open. 

First Tracks
Alex started skiing Sunday River at just two years old. Growing up, he would travel to ski nearly every weekend. "At eleven I rode up the chair lift with Simon Dumont, I was privileged enough to ski with him that day and he showed me his tricks," he says.
