My career as a professional skier and Olympian started in Butte Montana, skiing near by ski areas like Discovery Basin, Lost Trail Powder Mountain, and Bridger Bowl. As my older brother Bryon Wilson (Olympic Bronze Medalist) and I started to progress we decided to put all that we had into making the Winter Olympic Games. Our family decided to pack up and move to Park City, UT to find better training facilities. We both entered a great program who we still work with today called Wasatch Freestyle. Bryon qualified for the U.S. Ski Team that year where he continued to excel to Win the Bronze medal in the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver Canada. I then qualified for the U.S. Ski Team and have been skiing with Bryon on the World Cup Tour ever since, competing in many World Cup events and the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi Russia.
Like most sports, skiing has an offseason and I had to stay productive. So during the summer in Park City I started to play around with painting and, like my ski career, the art started to progress and began to take off. I have been selling paintings for 3 years now and it has been a huge help to pay for my expenses in my ski career.
