Zermatt Glacier Days: Episode 3.1

July 24th, 2017 - Posted by willski in Event Coverage, LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

Sami Ortlieb, Will Wesson and Crew Head Back To Zermatt


Oh, how quickly time passes. Yet here we stand with the start of the third season of the Zermatt Glacier Days. With filmer and scoring extraordinaire, Jeff Kohnstamm at the helm, the boys produced this rad piece of summer feel good shredding. Check out the lines Sami puts down, and don’t miss Will’s subtle rail trickery.

 

But above all, this rad little slice of Swiss life highlights the insane mountain landscape of the Alps. Massive glaciers, high alpine lakes, and a hefty dose of surreal high alpine wilderness. If that — combined with a rad summer park — doesn’t make you want to drop everything and head to Switzerland, nothing will.

Tom Wallisch X Good Company in Mammoth Unbound

July 11th, 2017 - Posted by willski in Event Coverage, LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

 


Tom Wallisch and Dale Talkington head to Mammoth for Some Slushy Spring Park Laps with Good Company

 

 

With an absolutely absurd snowpack from the best winter in recent years, Mammoth quickly became THE destination for early summer park laps. The infamous Mammoth Unbound Terrain Park is home to one of the best parks in the world. And Tom and Dale made quick work of it.

All shot and cut by the discerning eye of AJ Dakoulas from Good Company, this short segment offers smooth follow cams and the classic desaturated 4bi9 aesthetic. Toss in some good old fashion rail wizardry by two of the best in the game, and boom; there’s no doubt that this will be one of those edits you bookmark. Watch Dale destroy the iconic (but recently rebuilt as a tube?) Mammoth Deck Rail. Check out that absolutely mental straight left ten cuban. And oh yeah, did you catch the ABM backslide briebe continuing cameo?

But there’s no doubt that Tom puts in down. With his signature effortless landings, capped blunts, and flawless right 9s, tom puts it down with the style we’ve come to expect out of the Pittsburgh native. From filthy, high speed rail tricks, to floaty switch dubs, Tom puts it down.

So why are you still reading this? watch the darn thing already! And Check out Tom’s Ski here to get the tools you need to stomp as hard as Wallisch himself.

LINE Mountain Command Season Roundup

July 7th, 2017 - Posted by willski in Event Coverage, LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

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.

Woodward at Copper X LINE Skis

Rob’s Rolls 2

April 25th, 2017 - Posted by willski in Event Coverage, LINE Skis News

Rob’s Rolls 2

Rob Heule has undertaken a new film project this year. The Canadian LINE skier has been dragging around his trusty Canon AE-1 film camera and forgoing the iphone-tography. Instead, Rob has been using his phone as a recording device, logging ambient audio for every corresponding exposure.

 

The images themselves are crisp, warm, and inviting. And they offer a unique glimpse into Rob’s life. Often times, it seems as though skiers live this fast-paced, intense lifestyle. But with this intimate snapshot of life on the road, Rob offers a more realistic depiction of life on the road.

LINE Goes Wild In The Streets

 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.

LINE SKIS & NWAC make for More Funner, More Safer Backcountry Experience


NWAC season kickoff event to be held Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015 at evo 

Seattle, Wash. (Sept. 30, 2015)Line, makers of innovative, athlete-driven skis, is proud to announce its partnership with the Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC). As part of the partnership Line will provide ski equipment for NWAC field staff and help promote the dissemination of avalanche information and education including Snowbash, a season kickoff party held on Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015 at evo in Seattle, Washington.

“Now that Line has officially entered the backcountry ski market we want to support those individuals who work hard to inform the public about backcountry avalanche conditions,” said Line Global Brand Director Josh Malczyk, “Of course the gear people use to enjoy the backcountry is important, but nothing is more important than checking the avalanche forecast on a regular basis so travel can be as safe as possible.”

The new Line Sick Day Tourist ski, Snake Skins and Pollard Paint Brush adjustable length ski pole were chosen by NWAC for their lightweight, durability and exceptional downhill performance. It will allow the NWAC team to climb, traverse and descend easily and efficiently when performing regular avalanche assessments.

“Line’s new backcountry ski gear will help our team travel efficiently in and around avalanche terrain this winter while we evaluate the snowpack,” said NWAC Program Director Scott Schell. “Having Line’s support getting the word out about avalanche conditions for backcountry users will also be a huge step in the right direction to create more awareness of backcountry dangers.”

Join the NWAC and Line for Snowbash at evo Seattle Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015 from 5pm-10pm. Attendees will have the chance to win some new gear from Line, enjoy food from Peach & the Pig food truck, beer from Pyramid, Fremont, and Aslan Brewing and live music from DJ OCNotes. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Northwest Avalanche Center.
