Wallisch, a 19-year old professional skier is sponsored by 4Frnt, Spy, Jiberish, Sweet Protection, 4bi9media, and EC headwear. He resides in Salt Lake City, Utah where the snow is sweet. See Tom's awesome YouTube video - Superunknown to catch some of his Utah tricks.

Though the grass was greener than ever, the jam was on the snow. Wisp featured something for skiers and riders of all abilities.

Enjoying the event with friends
The pro's hooked it up on the big booter and pro style box set up, while the up-and-comers laid it down on the boxes. Wips even had some easy rider features for the young guns and beginner skiers and riders.

The party-like atmosphere made it fun for all, with music and grilling on the deck. And, the cash prizes of $250 was awarded for best skier and rider runs with an autographed copy of Real Time video from Tom Wallisch himself.
