Here’s a little gallery of what Line has been up to the last few days. From shredding the wheat paste rollers to slaying the TV mounts we’re ready to start the tradeshow. If you’re attending please come check out what we have. If you’re not, here’s some pics!
Eric Pollard is a skier, an artist, a ski designer, and a film maker. His vision for Nimbus Independent has become reality traveling around the world filming what he wants, with who he wants. The best part is he gets to edit it how he wants. This all started from not being satisfied with how his segments were edited. Enter the famous Eric Pollard “Self Edit”. Even though EP’s day job has become making self edits (and of his friends), he still has time for Line to pump out a fresh one of his 2009 season.
Eric now has a FACEBOOK page, so you can be his fan and get updates from the road! Enjoy!

Some riders of the Aestivation Project ( www.aesitvation.eu ) including Roy Kittler and Jussi Mononen flew up to the north of europe to slide some rails in Helsinki, Finland. Here some pictures of photographer Max Prechtel who joined them for the week. Mo, the head of the project told me that they got some really nice shots so be sure to check their next years movie!!!
After making the cross-country trip last summer, and then again in the fall, I was confused why I’m doing this for the third time in the past 8 months. I don’t mind car rides, but the prospect of being trapped in Will’s tiny Golf for thousands of miles didn’t get me too stoked. However, this time I was assured it was going to be different: rather than making a mad dash across, we had plans to ski around the Midwest first.
Perhaps one of the coolest parts of the trip was waking up in the ski patrol locker room at Perfect North, Indiana. Ski all day, hang out in the lodge, and then walk downstairs to go to bed. Isn’t that every kid’s dream? I know it was for me. That’s what makes the Traveling Circus so much fun, doing things you never thought you would do and going places that you never thought you would go.
A perfect example of a place I never thought I would go is Chestnut Mountain Resort in Illinois. We had no idea what to expect when we first arrived, but after a quick skate over to the park, we were all blown away. There were boxes, rails, hanging, and rolling barrels, and a sick-looking table made for a really fun park, something you might expect to find out west rather than in Illinois.
Skiing at Chestnut was great but we still had a long way to go, so after a sunny day of shredding, we hit the road. Endless driving, shady hotels at 2 a.m., and fast food was on our agenda for the next 20-plus hours. The driving was slow in some places due to high winds and blowing snow, but after the cursed city of Laramie, Wyoming (where my car blew up 4 years ago), it was smooth sailing in to Salt Lake City. Will and Shane dropped me off around 1:30 a.m. It was great to be back home. After almost a month of traveling and thousands of miles, I was ready to take it easy for a few days.

French MC Leo Taillefer got 2nd at the qualification for the Red Bull Linecatcher in Vars, France.
With props from Tanner Hall himself, let´s cross our fingers that he can ski on his A-Game against big names like Sean Pettit, Candide Thovex or JP Auclair in the finals!!!
Here is a video of the Qualification here from Downdays.eu
Its New Year’s Eve: With almost no clue as to where we would be sleeping, eating or going to the bathroom for the next week and with two cars packed to the ceilings myself, Will and Andy got on the New York State Thruway and headed west. Again.
We had convinced recent college “graduate” Ian Compton and our friend Jack to accompany us on our criss-crossing journey from New York through the mid-west and ultimately ending up back at our “homes” in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The plan was pretty simple: ski in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois before trying to beat any snow storms that might close the highways in Wyoming and make it back in time for Andy to compete in Dew Tour Half-pipe here in Utah.
While the ski season in the mid-west may be shorter in length, ski resorts definitely know how to stay open late, especially around the Holidays. After several consecutive nights of skiing way past midnight we came away with some pretty cool night footage and my back hurt from getting five hours of sleep on different crappy mattresses and strange hotel room floors each night.
Episode Four. See you Sunday.

Our FT & LINE rider Jaime Puigdengoles is rider of the year in Spain!!!
“It was a great night, the first FAN Awards ceremony put toghether some of the main faces of the Spanish freestyle scene, and I was lucky enough to get rewarded as Skier of the Year and shared that moment with some freestyle legends in the country like Aritz Aramburu (surfer), Andreu Lacondeguy (FMB), Dany Torres (FMX), Queralt Castellet (SnowBoard), among others.”
Congrats Jaime and keep holding it down!!!
From the desk of Will Wesson:
After some sunny early season skiing at The Canyons in Utah, Andy and I flew home to the east coast in Mid December. We spent the Holidays with our families in Western New York State and skied a couple days at Toggenburg Ski Area with our friend Pat Cowan. It wouldn’t be skiing in NY without some rain and we spent our first day messing around on “sled dogs” or “snow runners(plastic boots with a smooth base to slide on).” Luckily, on our second day at Togg had sunny skies, warm temperatures and the rails were prime.
Next up was our second continental crossing of the year, this time we stopped to ski along the way in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. We’d already driven Andy and Shane’s(camera guy) vehicles across the US to Utah in October, now it was time to cram everyone into my tiny VW Golf. Ian Compton and Jack Borland also joined us in Ian’s Subaru aka “Black Betty.”
On New Years Eve, we packed the cars full and headed to Mad River Mountain near Columbus, Ohio. After 8 hours of driving, we rolled in around 9pm tired, but ready to ski into the next decade. Mad River far and away exceeded every expectation we had for a small mountain in the Ohio. Tons of sick features open till 3am in the morning. Shooting guns on New Year’s Day. Deluxe room and board. All dreams that came true at Mad River Mountain, Ohio.
Next, our journey brought us to Perfect North Slopes Ski Area just over the border from Cincinnati in Indiana. 2010 started off awesome. First Mad River and now Perfect North hooked us up with food and slope side lodging. Literally: We slept in the lodge. Ski Patrol had bunk beds and once we got over the initial fish-food smell of the place we all got six hours of much needed rest. (Except for Jack who had to sleep out on the medical cots and was woken up very early the next morning) I’d seen edits and videos from Perfect North in the past and I was pretty pumped to finally ski there. Countless runs were taken in with one of the fastest laps of any park I’d ever skied. We also had some fun on fresh snow making mounds around the mountain.
Huge thanks to Nick at Toggenburg, Josh at Mad River, and Ellen at Perfect North Slopes!
