Tom Wallisch, the University of Utah’s resident slopestyle star, is still rising as illustrated by his latest accolade, Freeskier Magazine Skier of the Year.
It was indeed a monster 2010 for Mr. Wallisch, who made his first appearance in the Aspen X Games, took home first in the European X Games in Tignes, France, and won the final leg of the Dew Tour at Snowbasin, Utah. Beyond that, Tom continued to show the world that unmatched silky smooth style that’s even more refined than what was exhibited in his now legendary Level 1 Superunknown video. Like all great athletes across the sporting world, it doesn’t take an expert eye to tell that the kid is special. Need we mention that he did it all while managing a full course load at the University of Utah’s College of Business?
Way to go, Tom! Here’s to an even better 2011!
