After two film segments last year and a gold medal in last year’s European X Games, Tom Wallisch has certainly been killing it this season. Despite a recent injury keeping his winnings down to a minimum, Tom is skier that will be at the top of the game for years to come. In 2009/2010 Wallisch had a full winter season on Scott Sports products and he teamed up to create the Tom Wallisch pro model Fix goggle. After a great year he’s signed a new three-year deal to keep him onside!“I’m super happy to ink a new deal and be on board for another three years. It’s a great company to be a part of and I look forward to a lot of cool new products in the future,” says Tom.I’m hoping that this means bigger things for Tom and perhaps a new line of signature outerwear but I guess we’ll have to wait and see next season.Photo: Dan BrownRelated posts:Nissan Sports Adventure: How To Ride Trees Just found this video with some tips on how to...Nissan Sports Adventure- How to Heli drop Nissan Team Skier Aurelien Ducroz talks us through how to...Field Productions: Tom Wallisch As Field Productions were filming ‘Side By Side’, Tom...
Tom Wallisch has come a long way since winning Superunknown IV back in 2007. The “King of Afterbang” has just kept on innovating in the 12 years since that game-changing video. He sits down, for an extended interview, to talk about everything from how he got started to how skiing has changed throughout his career, with so much in between. The 31-year-old is now a veteran of Newschool skiing and he talks a lot of sense about some of the biggest issues in our sport.
Tom Wallisch is first return guest to The Powell Movement and there’s a reason for that…..He’s Tom Wallisch…..He sits on the board of directors for the US Ski and Snowboard Team, he’s all about giving back to the sport, he’s a living legend, and even as he’s gotten older, he’s kept his finger on the pulse of all ski media, while continuing to create his own. Wallisch always makes for an interesting conversation.
