Introducing the All New Sick Day Collection from LINE Skis

We’ve never been a brand that accepts the status quo. It’s in our DNA. Always pressing forward, pursuing the illusive, and creating. And this year is no different. Over at HQ, we took a hard the LINE Sick Day Skis, one of the more decorated lineups in skiing, and thought: how can we make this more fun?

So we went back to the drawing board, and retooled one of our favorite lines of skis. We realized we needed to make them arc better, make them surfier — all in all, we needed to make them…ahem, more funner.

Let’s start with the specs: this upcoming year, the skis ring in at four different waist widths: 114, 104, 94, and 88. Each Ski features Magic Finger Filaments — carbon stringers running the length of the skis — that add snap and pop to an already stable chassis. Whether you’re rallying hardpack, or pilfering pillows in hero snow, there is a Sick Day for you.

The Sick Day 114, equipped with our featherweight Partly Cloudy Core, is meant for those days. You know — those days. The days you dream about. The days where the refills are free, and you froth and chomp at the bit. Those days where you time gate drops perfectly, and the whiteroom is perpetual. Yeah, those days.

Stepping down in width, we are rolling out the Sick Day 104. This all-mountain, soft snow beast features a more gradual rocker line and a tail that will break loose with ease. But don’t think of this as a slouch on hardpack, either. This everyday quiver of one offers the snappy, good times vibe that won’t overbear or clap out after half a season.

The Sick Day 94 is the nimble, crud-busting every day ski that won’t blow it when an unexpected arctic pulse blankets the hills with a fresh coat. With a quick turn radius and ample camber, you’ll be able to arc and let ‘er buck in all conditions.

We round out the Sick Day family with the LINE Sick Day 88. From east coast gladed cuts to high speed groomers, the 88 will be your everyday weapon of choice. Cut the tails, surf the earth, and rail turns on hardpack; whatever your day may have in store, the Sick Day 88 abides.

LINE Goes Wild In The Streets

February 15th, 2017 - Posted by willski in Event Coverage, LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

 XGames Real Ski 2017 Is Live!


 

Forgoing the typical run-based contest, the folks over at ESPN debuted X Games Real Ski last season. The concept was simple: one skier, one filmer, and two months to create a 90 second segment. Whoever produces the best segment wins. Last year, our favorite van-dwelling transient, Will Wesson took home the top spot in 2016, while Tom Wallisch rallied the masses to win the popular vote.

This year, two more LINE skiers were tapped to take a shot at producing the segment of a lifetime: #railgod420 Khai Krepela and burgeoning stunt double LJ Strenio. Four skiers, four different styles and perspectives.

 

Will Wesson

Reigning champ Will Wesson returns to defend his title against some of skiing’s heaviest hitters. Piecing together techy and creative spots with a few massive handrails – and the typical composure we’ve come to expect – Will created a part that oozed style with nuanced technicality.

Tom Wallisch

Tom has never been one to shy away from the larger spots, and this year is no different. Twisting the winch throttle all the way open, Tom drops hammer after hammer with proper style and ease. His segment is marked by heavy spots, banger tricks, and a level of production that only Good Company could produce.

 

LJ Strenio

Urban flip ups. Massive handrails. High consequence lines. LJ, in his first XGames Real Ski appearance, redefines what is possible in the streets. With a stunt-oriented mindset, LJ flips, spins, and puts in all on the line in his segment, often times leaving you wondering what on earth you just watched.

Khai Krepela

Khai is a bit of a darkhorse in this competition, but his segment leaves no doubt: he deserves a seat at the table. With inverted wallrides, high consequence features, and arguably the most articulated ankles in the game, the Park City native makes a statement in classic form.

Analog Rob, Where Have You Been?

February 9th, 2017 - Posted by willski in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

Everyone’s favorite Canadian, Rob Heule dropped off the radar for the month of January. We couldn’t track him down, and his social channels were suspiciously quiet. However, Rob hadn’t exactly checked out; he was just doing typical Canadian things with his trusty SLR and a few rolls of film.

Between long tours in the mountains, soulful river surfing sessions, and the occasional laid-out backie, Rob Heule’s latest project, Rob’s Rolls, offers an experiential multi-media glimpse into life north of the border. Each image in the immersive slideshow — shot entirely on 35 mm film — is accompanied by audio recorded at the time of exposure.

 

Look for new episodes of Rob’s Rolls throughout the season!

Tom Wallisch featured on “The Powell Movement” Podcast


LINE Athlete & Urban Skier extraordinaire Tom Wallisch talks with Mike Powell in his podcast, “The Powell Movement.

Listen up below:

Tom Wallisch is one of the best skiers of his time and is still as humble as they come. From the streets, to the internet, to the X-Games and the big screen, Tom is known for being technical as much as he is known for style. Pretty impressive for a kid who grew up skiing in MD and PA.
