It is not often that an athlete reaches the top tier in two areas. But David Wise, a gold medal Olympic skier and First Lite Pro Team athlete, makes it happen.

A new film from First Lite highlights the successes as well as the normality of life of one of the best skiers in today’s game: David Wise.

Wise is currently at the height of his skiing career in the halfpipe, with the X Games in 2021 and an upcoming Olympic performance in 2022. He currently holds two Olympic gold and four X Games gold medals. And it is not uncommon to see him wearing it First Lite Camouflage on the slopes. (And from a junkie’s point of view, the David Wise setup is fire. Hey First Lite, where’s our ski set?)

It’s an unusual partnership in a world full of well-known ski brands. But Wise has been a hunter since childhood in Reno, Nevada. And the film shows his thoughts on life as a skier, hunter and what comes after the world of professional freestyle skiing.

It’s worth a watch.
