Very Bear T

David Wise

I’m a 29 year old husband to Alexandra and father of two rug rats Nayeli and Malachi. I also happen to be a pretty good skier, but it’s not the only part of me. I am an all around adventure addict.

I’m David Wise and I consider myself the most fortunate human alive. I have a decent, though somewhat volatile job (professional halfpipe skiing) and a beautiful wife, Alexandra. Skiing certainly helps pay the bills and helps me take care of my two greatest treasures, Nayeli (8) and Malachi (5). My family helps me remember that life is about a lot more than what I do in the halfpipe on a pair of skis. Striving to be the absolute best skier I can be comes naturally to me, but the things I do for others are what I would most like to be remembered for. For the entire 2017/2018 season I will be donating 10% of my contest winnings and payouts to Please check out their website and partner with me in this podium challenge. This website is a place you can follow the real me; not only the version of me that you see during a couple contests a year on TV. I will certainly share my skiing exploits here, but I will also strive to give you an inside look at the journey to the podium and the people I team up with along the way.

Aside from skiing I consider myself an outdoor addict. I love mountain biking, bowhunting, target archery, softball, fly fishing and pretty much anything else that gets me outside. I still live in my hometown, Reno, Nevada. Reno has always been home to me, and after extensively traveling the world I’m always happy to come back home. I’m also an avid reader and just finished writing my first children’s book “Very Bear and the Butterfly.” It’s a story about challenges and obstacles and seeing the beauty around us in spite of the negatives. I have my daughter Nayeli to thank for being my first listener and my wife Alexandra to thank for being my inspiration. Check out to check out the book and pre-order before its release in February. This is only the beginning of the things I have cooking. Stay tuned for more and check out the blog section to see what I’ve been up to most recently.
