Checkin in with Colston

Check out what Colston VB has been up to deep in BC. February kicked off with the release of this mini edit from his trip to Revelstoke, where his Sir Francis Bacons ran free.

Story from Colston himself…

It was about time for me to fulfill the much anticipated move to Whistler. I got my sled dialed and packed my bags and embarked upon what was to become by far the most fun ski trip of my life. I was supposed to move in for the rest of the season with my friends Callum Pettit and Leo Hoorn but one of their childhood friends needed a place more than I did so I ended up couch surfing for the whole month. Whistler received over 15 feet of snow while I was there (definitely the most massive amount of pow I’ve had the pleasure of skiing) and the conditions were pretty much perfect for filming with the Voleurz crew. However, some days it was hard to be motivated to go on a full on sled mission when the resort was just as good, much closer, and guaranteed more runs. On the handfull of sled days I had I learned a bunch about sledding and got a grasp on the many amazing backcountry zones around Whistler and Pemberton which I hope to explore more of.

EPOV Series by Line Skis

March 10th, 2011 - Posted by in Ski Artists & Designers

Last spring we climbed a mountain, sat legendary skier Eric Pollard on a rock and pointed a camera at him and said go. See into the mind of a skier who has revolutionized the equipment we use as well as the way we watch ski videos. Listen in on Eric Pollard’s point-of-view.

Part 1 – Nimbus Independent – Eric explains his reasoning for straying from the norm of a professional skier’s filming habits and they ways it’s been presented.

Part 2 – Skiing Style & Technology – EP talks about how far skiing has come from long, straight skis that plow through powder to the smooth fluid motions of backcountry freestyle skiing of today. To see the latest skis from Eric Pollard, check out the EP Pro, Sir Francis Bacon and EP Pro Shorty

MC on Podium at Euro Open Slopestyle

March 7th, 2011 - Posted by reece in Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

Hey Folks,
last week was pretty amazing for some of the LINE Mountain Commands.
We gathered our troops in Laax, Switzerland in the beautiful Rocks Resort.
Rocks Resort
It was (as always) nice to live with the buddys from the line team. This year it was Niklas Eriksson, Roy Kittler, Jaime Puigdengoles and one of our FT riders Kim Boberg.
Thanks here to Roy’s girl Nini for the awesome chockolate muffins and to Eva Patscheider for the great bag of sweets and groceries! You girls rock!

The training on Monday and Tuesday went pretty good and everyone was happy when the slopestyle qualification started of on wednesday morning.
The qualis went great and all MC’s on the startlist got into the semifinals on friday. Sadly the day didn’t get as planned for one of our friends and visitors at the apartment and ended up with a torn acl… Get well soon Lena!! Hope to see you back on the startlist next year!

On Friday Moring 7.50 am it was time to catch the first gondola up to the Crap Sogn Gion for the Slopestyle semifinals and finals.

Some of our guys where lucky, some others not that much, but that’s just how a comp goes! Roy was pumped for the entire week and went to the startgate pretty confident after winning his qualification heat 2 days earlier. He got his run down very clean and qualified for the finals.

Following him into the finals was Joss Christensen who convinced the judges with a very clean rail run, a flat 9, sw right 7 and sw dub 10. Jaime and Niklas did great on the first part but then struggeld a bit with some binding problem on the second jump.

Then it was time for the finals.
Roy scored high with his run all week long and so there was no reason to change it. He went big, spinning both directions with solid grabs and got himself onto the podium in second place!!! so stoked for you dude!!! Joss followed Roy and got 5th at the end. It was the first time 2 of our athletes made it into the finals and even one got on the podium!!

On friday it was time for our european pipe machine Nils Lauper to get his game on.

Through a good result last year he was prequalified for the semi finals, where he did a great job and qualified for the finals.
If you know Nils, you know there is always a pretty big show when he is dropping in – same this year. His first hit was unreal!!! I’m pretty sure if there would have been a highest air titel it would have been his! Sadly there wasn’t so he finished up 7th with a doub flair, rightside flair, his signature cork 7 screaming seaman and a steezy sw alleyoop 7.

All in all we had once again a great time in Laax and we really hope this event will be held again next year!

the LINE MC’s are ready!

Behind the Scenes: Line Team Shoot

March 2nd, 2011 - Posted by josh in LINE Skis News, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

For a couple days in late February, an epic Team Shoot went down at Snowbasin.

How epic you ask? With over 50 pairs of next year’s and top secret skis, 20+ Line skiers, 4 in house employees, 1 photographer, 1 videographer, the TC Crew and van, an 80 bedroom rental house w/ hot tub and heart shaped bathtub, oh and don’t forget that Snowbasin was our playground.

So yah… it was a good time. Here’s what went down….

UT-2011-Shoot11… and he knows it


LJ, Mitch Gilman and Joss Christensen sessioned a freshly cut, massive pipe which had just been used for Dew Tour. So you know it was good.




In true LJ form, he decided that he was going to try a double in a pipe… his first ever attempt. Lucky for you we have video, enjoy!

UT-2011-Shoot58Not only did Snowbasin offer a ton as far as our freestyle side of things, our freeride guys were able to get some serious testing and shooting done on some amazing terrain.

UT-2011-Shoot01After all the skiing was done everyone prepared for what would be several nights of ridiculous amounts of food, drinks and hot tub sessions.

P1000821TC van got groceries for night one. Yes this food only lasted about one day.

softgoods111We’re a big family here at Line, so there was no way we wouldn’t celebrate Marketing Manager Josh Malczyk’s birthday right with some brownies… normal ones I think.

Thanks to Snowbasin, our photographer Alex O’Brien, videographer Joe Gaetani and everyone who made it! We all had a great time and are ready to keep representin’ the brand that’s been skiing the wrong way since 95′.
