Alex Beaulieu-Marchand won Canada’s first Olympic medal in men’s ski slopestyle, capturing bronze at PyeongChang 2018. Four years earlier, he’d been the lone Canadian in the Olympic debut of men’s ski slopestyle at Sochi 2014 where he advanced to the final. Alex Beaulieu-Marchand represented Canada at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi in slopestyle skiing. As a kid growing up in Quebec City, QC though, ABM (as he’s known on tour) wanted nothing more than to play in the NHL.
But Beaulieu-Marchand’s parents were avid skiers who went to the hills every week and insisted on bringing him, since spending their weekends sitting in an arena was not of interest.
ABM quickly developed a love for skiing and made the cross-country journey to the acclaimed Momentum Ski Camps in Whistler. Unable to afford it, he decided to knit and sell hats all summer to raise the $1,000 necessary to go. And now, several years later, he spends a lot of his time training on those very same glaciers as a member of the Canadian Slopestyle Team.
