Well it seems the business education Tom Wallisch is receiving at the University of Utah might come in handy sooner than later, as Wallisch has inked yet another deal, extending his existing contract with Norwegian-based company Sweet Protection.

Wallisch says, “I’ve been riding for Sweet Protection for a few years now, and feel I’ve really developed a cool relationship with the company. I’m stoked to be a part of their team and I look forward to working with them and making even better products for the coming seasons.”

Wallisch, winner of 2009 Winter Dew Tour slopestyle stop at Northstar, plans to enter seemingly every major contest he can this winter. Currently, the 22-year-old Pittsburgh, PA native is in Sweden getting ready to compete in the 2009 Peak Performance King of Style happening this weekend.

Sweet Protection manager Erik Martinsen says, “Working with such a phenomenal athlete and personality like Tom is really motivating, and we really want to support him as much as possible. We want Tom to have fun, travel the world skiing, and continue pushing the limits of the sport. He’s a great product tester and his product input is of great value and an inspiration for all of us at Sweet Protection.”

Sounds like Wallisch will just have to keep balancing those studies with his skyrocketing pro skiing career.
