Another podium finish! Alex Hall took second place in Tom Wallisch’s Steel City Showdown 2022 at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Pennsylvania, this weekend. In the progressive Freeski event contested on rail obstacles, the 23-year-old Olympic gold medalist from Park City, Utah, rose all the way to the podium in an elite field of invited riders.
The invite-only event was created by pro skier Tom Wallisch, multiple gold medalist in Dew Tour, X Games, and FIS (International Ski Federation) competitions, and broadcast announcers. With the Showdown event, Wallisch returns the focus on ‘rail jam’ contests that reward the best technical tricks on rail obstacles and invites the best of the best riders to throw down.
Throwing down is exactly what Alex Hall has been doing this season. At X Games Aspen 2022, the Park City local took gold with a never-been-done 2160-degree aerial and medaled in three events. He carried the momentum into the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing and claimed Ski Slopestyle gold for Team USA.
