A day in the life of Tom Wallisch
Tom Wallisch's much-anticipated solo film part, "The Wallisch Project," debuts Tuesday on iTunes. So we decided to follow Wallisch around for a day to get a glimpse into his daily life this summer on the Blackcomb Glacier.
With about 20 days on the glacier in the month of July alone, Wallisch would consistently make it to the lift pretty early each morning.
For some reason, the lifts were stopping quite a few times on the way up on this particular day, and the bus ride was a bit slower than average, all of which made getting to the glacier take a little more than an hour. Yet this guy was still smiling and having a good time talking with friends.
With increasingly warm temperatures throughout the day in Whistler, Wallisch was trying to get as far as he could without throwing on his ski boots. At the top of the mountain, he put his boots on and grabbed a coffee, which he later left in the snow to make his own iced coffee.
On his first lap, Wallisch hit some rails and warmed up, although it didn't look like he needed it. He hit every feature flawlessly on the first lap.
Middle of the Day
It's crazy how clean this guy can ride anything he puts his skis on.
Switching it Up
Wallisch spent most of the day switching it up between jumps and rails. He was into switching up the lines he skied, always getting some variety. Luckily, the Momentum Ski Camps crew had four different options right off the t-bar to let his creativity run wild.
Later in the day, as he was skiing by the mogul course, Wallisch decided to drop in and get a backflip off the first jump.
That's a Wrap
Wallisch relaxed on the way down the mountain at the end of his day, with Whistler Mountain and Black Tusk in the background. He was pretty stoked to get his ski boots and ski pants off and enjoy the sun in something a bit more suitable.
After his day on the hill, Wallisch headed back up to his hotel and then out for some dinner and a good time at the lake to cool off after his summer skiing in Whistler came to a close.
