      Olympian Alex Deibold is as comfortable in the halfpipe as he is on the snowboardcross course, but when he took fourth at a Grand Prix race at Mammoth in 2004, the Stratton Mountain School grad stamped his name on the competitive world of SBX. He soon after was invited to join the inaugural U.S. Snowboarding snowboardcross team. According to the man himself, you ride because "snowboarding is fun—and when you compete, you're pushed to improve whether you want to or not.

      Deibold continued his competitive rise through 2011, when he pegged down a seventh-place finish on the World Cup and landed a ticket to World Championships. He then broke new ground with a fifth at the Stoneham World Cup and then a fourth-place at the X Games Aspen in 2012.

      In February of 2013 Deibold made the breakthrough he was looking for. He placed second at the FIS World Cup on the Olympic venue in Sochi, Russia, snagging his first World Cup podium. Overall, the 2013 World Cup season saw Deibold advance to finals at four out of five events, despite a deep field of competitors.

      In 2014 Deibold continued his steady upward progress, earning his second career World Cup podium, a third place in Lake Louise, which effectively secured his ticket to Sochi. Once at the Rosa Khutor Olympic venue, Deibold attacked each heat with steady, solid racing and advanced all the way to the medal round, where he landed on the podium and brought home an Olympic bronze medal.

      FIRST TRACKS
      Alex has been hooked on snowboarding ever since his Mom gave him a purple and green Burton Air 128 for Christmas at the age of four. He said he loved hitting jumps so much that, at age eight, he had to enter a slopestyle contest when one came to town.

      OFF THE SNOW
      When he’s not riding, Deibold enjoys anything outdoors–from mountain biking, backpacking and rock climbing to surfing.
