Join The Fun

Andy Parry x The Powell Movement

Andy Parry and the Powell Movement

Mike Powell checks in with Skiing’s Resident Weirdo, Andy Parry in this week’s “The Powell Movement,” a podcast about skiing, the action sports industry, and probably too much rollerblading. To be fair, though, Mike didn’t talk about blading once in this entire episode, so that’s a win.

 

Listen here:

Mike and Andy dig into the life of a professional skier, the legacy of the LINE Traveling Circus, and what it’s like to be a recognizable face in a subculture that exists in even surprising places. But that’s not all; below, you’ll find Mike’s show notes.

6. Colter Hinchliffe’s Sandstone & Snow released by TGR

“Last winter, instead of exploring Alaska, British Columbia, or Japan, Colter Hinchliffe found himself in another outdoor paradise: Moab.

However, Colter was inspired by the terrain and grabbed a pair of skis to explore the peaks of the La Sal mountain range.” READ MORE AT TETON GRAVITY.

ABOUT LINE TRAVELING CIRCUS:

Admission is free! No high-end production crews, annual movie sales, snowmobiles or AK heli trips here. Powered by more creativity, ingenuity and hyperactivity than a 3rd grade art class, this band of misfit skiers is led by die-hard ski bums Will Wesson and Andy Parry. Criss-crossing the globe in search of angled surfaces to ski on, the Traveling Circus is part reality TV, part ski bumming. For comedy, adventure and skiing antics that prove truth is more entertaining than fiction make sure not to miss an episode. Every online webisode is watched hundreds of thousands of times by skiers around the world. This is the reason why the International Freeskiing Film Festival (IF3) presented the Line Traveling Circus with the first-ever “Best Webisode” award in 2010 and 2011. 3,000,000 views and counting!
