Bryon Wilson (born April 7, 1988) is an American freestyle skier and Olympic bronze medalist. He earned a spot on the US Freestyle Ski Team for the 2010 Winter Olympics after a solid beginning to the 2009–10 FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup season where he had two 2nd-place finishes during the first weekend of competition at Suomu, Finland.[1]

Bryon was born and lived in Butte, Montana, for most of his life until his family made the decision to move to Park City, Utah,[2] to be closer to an advanced training facility to enable him, along with his younger brother Brad Wilson, to advance their skills and build a career in competitive skiing. The boys learned gymnastics from a young age and began skiing as toddlers. They later began to combine the two sports.[citation needed] Both brothers train at Deer Valley and the Utah Olympic Park in Park City.[3][4]

At the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, Wilson won the bronze medal in men's moguls with a score of 26.08.[5]
