      BIOGRAPHY
      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.

      Barrymore's trick arsenal, loose style and signature amplitude boosted him to Grand Prix wins, Dew Tour podiums and X Games invites. After battling a double ACL injury during the 2012 season, Barrymore looked forward to coming back on the scene.

      Unfortunately, Barrymore broke his shoulder after he finally got back on skis in December, which set him back about six weeks. Undeterred, this amplitude fiend is looking to train hard throughout the summer and come back with fire next winter.

      WING TAI SAYS 
      I want to win and make finals consistently! I’m happy with my results and I can’t complain with my shoulder injury this season. It’s good to be feeling confident. I would really like to stay healthy and get my consistency back.

      FIRST TRACKS 
      Barrymore was on skis at the young age of three, but it wasn't until his junior year of high school that he took a full shot at the sport. Barrymore grew up racing motocross and supercross until he started skiing competitively at the age of 16 with the famed Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation. The foundation’s coach, Coach Ben Verge, still works with Barrymore.

      OFF THE SNOW 
      Barrymore plays guitar to pass the time. In summer he stays active riding and racing dirt bikes, skateboarding, and surfing both behind a boat and in the ocean. If that's not enough, he also water skis, backpacks, rock climbs and loves to travel whenever there's an opportunity.
