Ah, editing episode two…
After Mount Hood, The Circus met up again in late August to brainstorm what we wanted to do for the second episode. A few weeks later we had gone grass skiing, visited friends in Vermont and watched three straight days worth of ski movies at IF3 in Montreal.
Episode two includes these very random weekend trips through late August and September that for a second had us thinking that maybe summer in the northeast wasn’t so bad after all.
Here is a hint: If you’re not a fan of The Traveling Circus on Facebook. Do it up! Episode two might be on there sooner than you think.

After the long voyage down south we all needed to have a little fun and a few weeks later drove up to Burlington Vermont for IF3, Meatheads premiere and an epic Leddy session. IF3 for the last three years has been a huge event for us and always a fun time. This year was no different and after the long weekend of ski movies, dope fly party’s and watching our friend Ross’s life fall apart we returned to Burlington ready to rest for a few days.
After a few days of much needed rest Will and I spent the first part of the week fixing his old rails and helping the Meatheads get ready for the home town showing. That Friday we all headed down to Leddy for the most epic session ever, jibbing on the beach at sunset. After a quick change of cloths we all shook off the sand and hustled over to UVM just in time for the first movie. Both showings where packed and with plenty of sponsor toss outs everyone had a fun time.
Out on the frozen peaks and gritty streets of the East Coast, roams a mighty and majestic creature. Renowned for their endurance and aggressive behavior, Wild Stallions are notoriously elusive and rarely captured on film. Meathead Films dedicated the 2009 season to tracking stampedes all over the Eastern U.S. and Canada range. In this never-before-seen footage, watch as stallions gallop across the countryside, navigating treacherously deep snow and bewildering urban terrain. Learn about this misunderstood animal and what drives them to perform tremendous athletic feats in such a hostile environment. Shot in High Definition, 16mm and Super 8 film, Wild Stallions will prove once and for all, that some animals just can’t be tamed…
LINE MC’s Will Wesson, Andy Parry, Garrett Russel, Tony Rossi and more charge the east like the wild stallions they are.
from friday the 16th till sunday the 18th the famous Kaunertal Glacier Opening took place !
Patrick Hollaus and me meet friday morning at my appartement i Innsbruck, to get ready for KTO!
After a 1h drive we made it to the Riders Office in Feichten to get inscription done and food vouchers!!!!!!
After that we went striaght up to the glacier to shred the mini park they built!
In the afternoon the Downdays rail battle took place!
Loads of crazy tricks were thrown down,one foot 3out and bonk 2 in change up to 2 out as well as bonk4 in and nosebutter 2 on pretzel 2 out and some lip 270´s with pretzel 2 out from my side, as well as the all time favorites like 2 in pretzel 2out and blind switch up to pretzel2out, and k-fed´s and a small 13year old swiss kid which was destroying it!
Luckily i could win the battle and got the sickest price ever: A 300euro check for the Blue Chip Club in Innsbruck…gonna share that with some friends!!
Afterwards we went to a Line Team dinner with Korbi, Patrick, Marco, Tom, Robie and Marc at Pizzaria Rustica, had some nice food and after we went to the Aestivation premiere!
Next day was Mini shred comp, unfortunatley the weather was really bad, snow was falling, fog all over the place and it was coooooold! All the new snow made it really hard to even get enough speed without pushing for all the boxes!
But anyway the crew did a great job by providing a perfectly shaped mini shred park!
The luck was not on my side this day, and i crashed ones and did a bit shit on the kinked box on my second run! But Tobi, the grom of the team did a great job and got second!!!!

at least we had fun and a great weekend!!!!!
today was pow pow day!
first one of the season!
here is a little video, the quality is not that good, but you can see that we got a lot of snow in mid of october!!!!!
After Windells Camp ended, we flew home to the east coast and the realization of summertime set in. Something must be done. Astroturf and PVC rails in the backyard wasn’t going to cut it…
…So we drove 8 hours to Virginia?
The home state of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson boasts two of North America’s most epic destinations for snowless skiing. After a night of camping, we headed over to Bryce Resort for some grass skiing. Grass skiing feels some what like rollerblading in grass, but there are no wheels, just a track(like on a tank or snowcat) that is oiled and rotates around a center metal piece. How do you stop? It can get interesting. After some weak attempts at tricks on the grass skis, we decided to go all out for the most extreme day possible.
We drove south a few hours to Liberty University, home of the first snowflex center in North America. It’s been years of seeing dryslope pictures from Europe, thinking how awesome it would be to ski year round. Finally, at long last, we had the chance to ride one! It was pretty cool to see people stoked on skiing and riding in the middle of August in a town that gets a few inches of snow a year max. To add to the experience, the entire slope was lit up and open till 10 at night.
Huge Thanks to Horst at Bryce Mountain and Eric from Liberty University for helping us ski in the middle of Summer.
If Cool Hunters are cool, and say our skis are cool, does that mean you’re cool if you ride them?
First step is to BUY THEM
It was only a few years ago that Will and I were walking around the Ski Company sale in Rochester NY looking for good deals and getting pros autographs. Crazy how things have changed and somehow this year both of us had our own posters, table, and black sharpie markers for signing autographs. In the mist of the area’s biggest Ski and Snowboard sale Will and I set up shop under the Line tent for Friday night and Saturday answering questions like “Who are you?” , “What the hell is Traveling Circus?” and of course “Why are the back of those skis turned up?”. Fortunately Will and I had all the answers, and over the course of two days may have even convinced some people to go home and watch Traveling Circus.
All in all it was a great time, we made some shy kids go hit on a group of girls with the flawless opening “How much does a polar bear weigh?”, signed a bunch of autographs, yelled at kids to buy Line stuff (believe it or not it worked) and even got our own limited edition poster. Thanks to everyone that at the sale, everyone who came out, Rene for being a kick ass Line rep, and the Ski Company for inviting us.
Landing her first cover, MC Molly Baker graces the front of Backcountry Magazine this month. Congrats to Re Wikstrom for capping the shot and Molly for putting in that nice slash on her Pandoras. Here’s the story behind the cover shot as told by Molly Baker as well as a video from the days she was up at Baker shooting:
“Yes, the sky was really this blue when Re Wikstorm and I got this shot last year at Mt. Baker in January. I flew up to Washington on a whim to meet up with Re and Grant Gunderson. Famous for world record snowfall, this place doesn’t offer many blue days. This was the first day I could see all of the peaks around the resort. Our first shot of the day after hiking an hour or so into the Mt. Baker backcountry, we worked alongside Grant and his athlete on this sunny, steep ridge. I watched the first guy go and then dropped in as fast as I could, easily pushing through the snow with my Pandora’s. It wasn’t just this time, choking on snow on a bluebird day in the backcountry, but a combination of a few days, turns, and lines, that made me quit my bartending job in Salt Lake and extend my trip for another five weeks.” – Molly Baker
