Wing Tai Barrymore was born and raised in Sun Valley Idaho and is the grandson of Dick Barrymore, the man behind "The Last of the Ski Bums" ski movie. Having been a dirt bike racer from age six to sixteen, Barrymore loves any sport that goes fast. So it was no wonder that he took to halfpipe skiing and joined the Sun Valley Ski team during his junior year in high school.
Barrymore’s competition highlights include a Grand Prix win in 2011, a Dew Tour podium in 2012 and an X Games Aspen invite in 2012. During his first run at the X Games, Barrymore suffered a dual ACL injury, which sidelined him for the remainder of the 2012 season. Barrymore moved to Park City to rehab at the USSA Center of Excellence.
When he finally got back on skis in December 2012, Barrymore suffered an unfortunate shoulder injury, which set him back about six weeks. Undeterred, this amplitude fiend trained hard to recover and got back on snow later in the season. He then put together a solid 2014 season with an eighth at the Aspen/Snowmass Open and a fourth at the SFR Tour in Tignes, France.
