Does that mean tanner hall shouldnt havent any past park footage, because hes from montana. just because someone is from a specific region that is know for backcountry, doesnt mean that is what there freestyle skiing roots consist of.
Well, actually Wiley grew up skiing at Red Lodge and Big Sky, MT- two resorts not well known for their parks in the 90's (or now for that matter). The first promo I ever saw of him and his brother Jeremy was 90% pow skiing and pow jumps from Big Sky, Jackson, and Utah.. I don't think he got a good opportunity to ski park until moved down to SLC to go to school and rode Park City. Still to this day most of the tricks he learns are completely out of the park, kind of the opposite of most people. Pretty well-rounded skier I'd say.
Here is his breakthrough segment from PhotoPlay killing it at Baker and in Utah with Jeff and Teddy:
Dude park skiing in montana while Wiley was in high school was a joke. I competed against him and his brother several times at some of the early Red Lodge Mountain competitions. He defiantly killed it at the time but i think he learned most of his tricks in the bc. Then in 2007 I ran into him at the us open where he qualified for the finals. but anyway Wiley never had the biggest tricks but his style has always been dope
