February 24th, 2010 - Posted by in Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

Line is out here in Jackson Hole, WY shredding the gnar with Powder Magazine for their annual ski test and gathering of the ski industry people who sit behind desks most of the time. Hopefully we can make it through the week. Enjoy the pics!

 The Garrett Russell Experience

February 22nd, 2010 - Posted by in Traveling Circus Sideshow

After SIA Shane, Will, Garret and I all head down to Angel Fire, New Mexico. The long days and nights of the Denver trade show had taken its toll on us, and it was nice to be out of the city. We got into Angel Fire after dark, and woke up early the next morning to check things out. The sun was shining and the park was prime, and with 3 different parks we had a sick day of riding.

After two days skiing around Angel Fire we headed to Telluride to stay with Garret for a few days. We spent the first day skiing the park at Telluride, and then headed into the back country. Garret towed us into an old mining town, and we started to set up three different jumps across a stream. We had some minor complications with some of the jumps, Will was landing on rocks, and I barley had enough speed to clear the the stream. Luckily we all survived, and after headed up near the Garret family house to finish off the day with a fun BC jump.

Anything and Everything.

In late January, after a long dryspell in Utah, the sky opened up and overdue glory snowed down upon us.  We headed to The Canyons for some deeeeep powder with Erik Olson.

After a few epic days on the mountain, we hit up a local park in Salt Lake City with Ian Compton.  I don’t want to give anything away, but I’d personally like to thank Ian for his sacrifices during this session.  Shane even bought him a burrito for his efforts.  He’s okay, don’t worry, just sit back and enjoy.  Man vs. Tree:

Next up, we hopped in the car and set out towards Colorado.  On the way we hit up some rare desert mini lines for the heck of it. Everyone got first descents.

We met up with Garrett Russell (above) in Glenwood Springs, CO and continued on to Denver for the SnowSports Industries America Trade show also known as SIA. Check out the LINE soft-goods and Pointy Stick Man below:

Episode Five Coming Soon

February 14th, 2010 - Posted by in Traveling Circus Sideshow

Our original plan was for Episode Four to be an entirely east coast episode filmed around Christmas time, but after a few weeks of less-than-awesome weather in the north-east we decided to bump up the cross-country road trip through the mid-west (intended for Episode Five) and get the heck out.

Returning to Salt Lake City in January we began brainstorming ideas for Episode Five ski destinations while enjoying a week of awesome Utah powder. Will and I then mapped out a brief 1,800 mile loop which included the SIA tradeshow in Denver, skiing in New Mexico at Angle Fire, and heading back into Colorado to visit our friend Garrett Russell in his hometown of Telluride, Colorado.

Highlights of the trip included, but were not limited to: skiing sand dunes in the desert, Andy’s first time in the backcountry, sweaty handshakes at the tradeshow convention in Denver, skiing in New Mexico, and eating instant noodles for every meal while staying at Garrett’s house in Telluride – which wasn’t really a highlight. Rather a low-point for myself.

Hattrick at Polish Open

February 2nd, 2010 - Posted by in LINE Skis News, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

The road trip to Zakopane actually starts on Wednesday, including the consequences of a Wednesday night in Innsbruck. A part of the crew was displaced to some of Innsbruck finest localities by the Legs of Steel. This is why the departure time was changed without further ado from 8h to 10h at 5 o‘clock in the morning.

On Thursday morning the downdays and Line traveling crew consisting of the Photographer Thomas Charry, Jussi Mononen and Jonee Puelz under the guidance of Line‘s „Mista Cash“ Korbi left to Poland. At the Chiemsee Roy Kittler joined us. The fact that it finally snowed after a dry period lasting for weeks implied a big disadvantage for us. The traveling time was extended about more than 4 hours, so in total we spent 14,5 hours on the road. Our 2 navigation systems both didn‘t know Zakopane, which didn‘t speed up our duration spent in the car, as well.
