Check Out Five Season Edits from the International LINE Mountain Command
The LINE Mountain Command, the legions of local rippers the world over, have been a mainstay of the LINE program from the beginning. Whether they’re lapping the big line at Breckenridge, piecing together lines at the plaza-inspired Sugarbush Parks, or hiking sketchy double kinks in Austria, the LINE MC operates within the core of current skiing.
And as the summer rolls around, the Skiers of the LINE Mountain Command invariably get to work, piecing together season edits of their winters spent chasing skiing — whatever that might mean to them. So we took a small spattering of some of our favorite season edits (so far), and grouped them together for your viewing pleasure. Each one, unique in it’s own right, highlights different regions and styles of skiing. Kick back and enjoy — we know you will.
1) Thomas Trifonitchev – Germany
With silky smooth style, lazy sets, and some damn good grabs, German Thomas Trifonitchev’s season edit is rad. Every set is proper. Thomas has that classic and timeless approach to park skiing. Check out his edit, filmed mainly in Austria. Check out that Flat 5 early slap across the rainbow rail!
2) Charlie Dayton – Vermont
There’s no denying that Vermont holds a special place in LINE’s heart. For many years, we called Burlingon, Vermont home, and the area has long been a stronghold of LINE Mountain Command Skiers. Heck, Most of the Rebel Base (all those nerds working at LINE behind the scenes) called Sugarbush their home mountain at some point. Charlie keeps that train going, but embodies the skate-inspired style that dominates Vermont ski culture.
3) Peter Koukov – Colorado
If you roll up to Keystone or Breckenridge, Colorado on any given day, the park will be overrun by talented comp kids, training their t-set dub tens and unnatural 9s. And then there’s Peter Koukov. With dad shades and track jackets, he’s that guy skiing mach-a-billion into flat rails, and skying backflips off of barrel bonks. This young buck treads that line between swerve skiing and the more traditional — and has more fun than you while doing it.
4) Fabio Doberauer – Austria
With some reckless behavior, sketchy urban setups, and an utter lack of fear, Fabio Doberauer brings the reckless element into his skiing. Check out some of those bails; he’s fully committed. Skiing out of the one and only Absolut Park in Austria, Fabio is holding it down both in the streets and on the massive jumpline at Austria’s best park.
5) Peyben – Sweden
Par Hagglund is the main member of the Bunch Family, but before the norm-core troupe of skiers came together at Space Camp (no joke), Par was one of the best up-and-coming ski racers in Sweden. In Peyben in the Park II, Par demonstrates his uncanny ability to twist, swerve, and defy physics on even the most basic features. Maybe one day, Par will take it one step further and produce an entire edit leaving the ground.
Stay tuned for more season edits and segments as the months roll on.
