Tom Wallisch got his start years ago by uploading his roughshod edits to Newschoolers and Facebook, and millions of views later, here we are. The internet sensation made good on all his hype, steadily racking up podiums, culminating in one of the most dominant contest season of all time in 2012. Taking a short hiatus from contests and traditional filming in 2013, Wallisch produced his own mini-movie in 2013: The Wallisch Project. Despite suffering a torn ACL at the beginning of the 2013-14 season, Tom persevered through the contest season, never finishing outside the top 10. Since then, Tom has found himself back at the helm of producing projects—-including a Guinnes World Record and an acclaimed series dubbed, Good Company. The Pittsburgh-native turned Park City-resident has become at once one of the most successful, most dominant and most beloved freeskiers of all time. Not bad for a kid who grew up shredding a 700-ft resort in Maryland.
