Moguls skier Bryon Wilson knocked everyone's socks off in 2010 when, after a stroke of luck got him a start on the World Cup, he nailed two second-place finishes and a spot on the 2010 Olympic team. But Wilson wasn't done yet, as he took his newfound success and landed a bronze medal in Vancouver. U.S. Ski Team coaches say his speed and agility on snow are the cornerstones to build a consistent performer.

The 2012 season was a comeback year following ACL reconstruction, but 2013 was a show-stopping season for Wilson. He earned his first World Cup win in Kreischberg, Austria and finished the season ranked 10th.

In 2014 Wilson proved his staying power by notching four top-10 World Cup finishes. His best was a fourth-place finish in Lake Placid, NY. Keep on the lookout for this lightning-fast moguls skier in the next few years heading into Pyeongchang 2018.

FIRST TRACKS
Wilson started skiing when he was three, but didn't move to freestyle until he was 12 "and was hooked." Bryon and younger brother Brad (also a U.S. Ski Team member) started at Lost Trail when Tom Vinyard invited them to ski with him. Later Wilson moved to the Bridger program with Mike Papke and Tony Gilpin before joining Wasatch Freestyle in Park City, UT.

OFF THE SNOW
Off the mountain Wilson creates wood sculptures, mostly trout carving but some other subjects as well. He also loves to fly fish and ride mountain bikes.
