In the latest string of headlines about Line’s own Andy Parry, private emails with Powder’s Intern will surely hurt Parry’s boyscout image. Not only does he paraphrase profane language but he even had the audacity to claim his disdain for the state of Idaho saying “Idaho? What the f*ck is that? Is that where my potatoes come from? So far the most time I have spent in that state was driving to Hood from Salt Lake.”Well at least he didn’t whip out his Chronic Cryptonites and jib old people at a park, right?
Go check out the full scandalous story HERE.
Oh and make sure to scroll down and read the comments from the good ol’ boys that aren’t fans of this scandal and how it degrades skiers everywhere.
If you’re looking for a way to get fit this summer, you should go check out Meathead Film’s webisode series “2 Minute Workouts”. They will be exclusively on ESPN every Monday leading up to Meathead’s newest film “Work it Out” (ahh now it makes sense). Line’s own Andy Parry, Will Wesson and LJ Strenio make up this entertaining crew which will give you something to look forward on Mondays. These guys are just killing it with their arsenal of Afterbangs and Chronic Cryptonites. So go check out the first installment of “Work it Out” and make sure to stay tuned for the rest of the series on ESPN’s freeskiing blog.
On the slopes of Mt. Hood in Oregon, a group of Line’s finest tested out some secret skis under blue skies and sunshine. Even Eric Pollard drove up the road to join in and give his full participation.
After all the ski swapping and laps were over the group headed down for some Huckleberry shakes and a thorough discussion about the pros and cons of what they rode that day. This is how progression happens and great skis are made.
Check out Line skier Andrew Whiteford‘s 09/10 season edit and you’ll surely feel that inkling of envy. Originally from VT, Andrew moved out to Jackson Hole where he his Motherships have been able to run free amongst the steep chutes, cliffs and DEEP powder. Shot with all POV this edit should be added to your favorites because it will either keep you stoked during the summer, drive you crazy with jealousy or make you move to Jackson (which I do not recommend because Andrew doesn’t want to be responsible).

Thermodynamically, Eric explains how he’s not into music while riding, lets us into what he’s been reading as well as gives us a book list to have read by the end of summer. Smart people ski on Chronic Cryptonites. Check it all out here!

Well done buddy!
In mid-April, I was pretty bummed with the seemingly inevitable end of the ski season approaching. I had been able to manage a solid number of days on the hill, but memorable ones seemed few and far between. As the weather sources were reporting yet another wide-spread warm-up, hope seemed to have been lost. And just like that, the East Coast came along and… totally redeemed itself! (Dumb and Dumber, anyone?)
It started with a fluke foot of snow across the higher elevations in Northern New England over the weekend of April 17th and 18th. Check out Last Hurrah’s: Wildcat. That round of snow set the stage for perfect conditions on Mt Washington’s Tuckerman Ravine. I was starting to feel a bit more content with the season.
Then, along came one of the most potent spring storms in recent memory. The snow began on April 27th and it continued to fall heavily into mid-day on April 28th. The storm was a classic upslope snowfall event – a weather phenomenon which is more characteristic in mid-winter than late spring. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service forecast read:
LATE SEASON UPSLOPE SNOWFALL ABOVE 1000 FEET IN THE DACKS AND NORTHERN GREENS. LOOKS LIKE JACKPOT SPOT WILL BE JAY PEAK WITH FAVORABLE NORTHWEST FLOW OVER MORE THAN 24 HOURS. HEAVIEST SNOW WILL LIKELY FALL TUESDAY NIGHT AS PERSISTENT NW FLOW CONTINUES. SNOW WILL CONTINUE INTO WEDNESDAY ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN SNOW ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS WITH MORE THAN A FOOT POSSIBLE IN THE JAY PEAK REGION

|Good morning Jay Peak|
|Well over a foot at the base|
After a nearly snowless March and April, I was shocked to be able to use the word “nuking” to describe the conditions on Tuesday evening. While many had condemned the season weeks before, there were a handful of others out there hungry for some late-season pow. Of course, Meathead Films El Presidente Geoff McDonald was one of the first to come knocking. We met up at Jay Peak that evening in near disbelief. The Weather Channel was calling for the heavy snow to continue through the following morning before tapering to flurries and eventually clearing in the late afternoon.
Just as we hoped, we woke up early and were greeted by near white-out conditions. The good folks at Jay Peak made the decision to open the mountain for an extended final weekend of skiing from Thursday April 29th through Sunday May 2nd; but Wednesday was looking to be best day to gather some freshies. We made our way to the mountain and caught up with Meathead athletes Stacey Rachdorf and Asia Magriby. The Stateside parking lot had a handful of skiers gearing up to earn their turns. We skinned through a well-cut skin track to the top of the Bonaventure Quad amidst steady snow and a silent mountain.
