Alex was an outstanding role model for his sport. Growing up in Mansfield with his parents running the ski/snowboard business - everyone could see how much passion he had for winter sports - he made the switch from skiing to snowboarding when he was 8 years old and never looked back.
An outstanding athlete who won 2 snowboard cross world championships and was the flag bearer for the Australian Olympic team at the 2014 Sochi Games. Chumpy is one of our greatest ever winter athletes.

Highly respected by staff and athletes at the VIS during his 7 years on scholarship - he was always very appreciative of the support and assistance that he received (a humble champion).
Chumpy loved to embrace other interests and hobbies, music including song writing , surfing , spearfishing; upholding our motto of “success in sport & life”
A tragic loss - he will be missed by everyone. Our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and his winter sport teammates in Australia and overseas.
