Northstar announced David Wise as the newest member to their professional skiing/riding team. Wise, age 23, is a Reno Nevada resident who is locking his sites on representing the U.S. at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.
Wise is a member of the U.S. Freeskiing Team with recent wins at the FIS World Championships, Winter X Games, and U.S. Grand Prix at Park City. Wise got serious with his skiing when he joined a freestyle ski team at age 11. By age 12 he entered his first halfpipe and Big Air competitions.

“I feel honored to be a part of the Northstar Pro Team, Wise said. “As I head into this season, I am grateful for the support of the Northstar family. My own family loves skiing here, it’s close to home, and I can rely on some of the best and most reliable ski conditions in the West”.
