Join The Fun

INTRODUCING: Taylor Lundquist

Taylor Lundquist joins The LINE Team

Taylor Lundquist Hiking Rails on the All-New Honey Bee

Taylor Lundquist has been holding it down for years in Utah, crushing PC laps and putting in work on the competition circuit with a strong resume as a slopestyle skier. But the best part about Taylor’s skiing — and what really drew our attention — was her style and pursuits beyond the competition realm.

It’s what made her a natural fit for our band of misfits over here at LINE Skis; she’s got a style uniquely all her own and is pushing women’s park skiing in a different direction. We’re a brand steeped in celebration of the oddballs, the weirdos, and the fun. And that is what Taylor is all about.

So LINE jumped at the opportunity to round out our Women’s team — in addition to TGR Star Hadley Hammer and Olympic Bronze Medalist Kim Lamarre — with one of the best up and coming style-oriented skiers in the game. We shot a few questions her way to see just what exactly she’s all about.


Tayler Lundquist

  1. Age: 24
  2. Other Sponsors: Full Tilt, DaKine, Electric
  3. Where are you from? Park City, Utah.

What’s the plan this year? This is a big year for me. Considering it’s an Olympic year, I’ll be attending all of the qualifier events. Hopefully, I can make it Pyeonchang to represent the good ol’ USA. But otherwise, I’ll just be doing what I do every year: skiing, filming and traveling. It’s all for the love of, ya know?!

Why LINE? The first pair of twintips I ever owned were LINE skis. If you know what’s good, you know that LINE is the OG Freestyle Ski Company. You guys have always been in it for the right reasons. There’s a lot of passion for the grassroots, the weird, the fun. And, LINE has always helped support the best content and done their best to share the love of skiing all around the world. These are all the things I care about, and it’s exactly the kind of brand with wich I want to be involved.

Quick hit from Taylor Testing out her new Honey Bees.

Three Things You Love: Tattoos, Sk8boarding, Traveling.

Paul Marik 2k17

LINE Midwest MC and cheese curd enthusiast, Paul Marik, checks in with his 2017 Season Edit. Not bad for a full-time student pushing out to the local hills of Wisconsin.

Check it out!

Tom Wallisch and “Imagination”

October 30th, 2017 - Posted by willski in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

Tom Wallisch Pays Homage to JP Auclair with his Newest Short Film from The North Face.


Remember JP Auclair’s segment from All.I.Can? It featured the legend himself ripping through the snowy streets of Nelson, BC, jibbing whatever feature crossed his path. Well, Tom Wallisch and Sherpas linked up to recreate and expand upon that famous segment with their newest joint, “Imagination.” Check it out below:

 

 

The edit itself takes the classic childhood daydreams, when you imagine what it would be like if you could shred any feature in the cities around you. Sherpa’s Cinema came in and took on the camera work, tracking Wallisch as he rolled together a heavy line of jibs, an absurd switch rodeo off a dumptruck, and even the classic JP Auclair Backflip Mute.

An edit like this is no small feat; tapping just about everyone from the local community, Sherpas pieced together an edit that not only pays tribute to the man that shaped our sport, but it also helps us remember why exactly we got into skiing in the first place.

New edit from @sherpascinema and @thenorthface ! Coming on the 29th! Get ready! #weloveyouJP – 📷 @jakedyson

Oh, and you get a glimpse of the rad Tom Wallisch Pro in it’s natural element. Learn more about the ski HERE. And read more about the trip on Sherpa Cinema’s Blog HERE.

Welcome Parkin!

October 24th, 2017 - Posted by willski in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

Meet LINE’s Newest Pro, Parkin Costain!

Watching Parkin Costain rip apart big mountain faces, it’s hard to imagine he’s only 18 years old. With a calm, collected style and a penchant for high speed blasting, this young buck shows a level of confidence in real-deal terrain unmatched for people in his age group.

And when saw his entry in the Quicksilver Young Gun Competition, we knew that this young shredder had grown beyond the developmental stages of his skiing. We knew it was time to bring him up to the big leagues. So we turned him pro.

 

Armed with a grip of big sponsors behind him, a strong background in editing, and the confidence to send deep in the backcountry, Parkin is steadily making a name for himself. We couldn’t be more stoked to have him officially on the team.

So in order to celebrate, we wanted to share with you his 2017 Season Edit, jam-packed with massive backies, high speed shredding, and some good vibes. Give it a look!

 

LINE Traveling Circus Episode 10.1: Arizona Ice TC

October 10th, 2017 - Posted by willski in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

LINE Traveling Circus Enters Tenth Season

That’s like, 50 Episodes, man!

10 Years?? Crazy! But here we are, with the first episode of the tenth season. And it also happens to be the fiftieth episode. That’s right, FIFTY episodes. Over the years, Will Wesson and Andy Parry have criss-crossed the country an absurd amount of times, consumed countless pizzas, and inspired a whole generation of skiers along the way.

Traveling Circus

From the humble beginnings passing the camera back and forth to the developed, world-traveling scope it is today, LINE Traveling Circus has cemented its place in skiing history — without abandoning the founding impulse. LTC has always celebrated the weird, the odd, and the downright strange. And Season Ten stays true to those roots.

Traveling Circus AZ

For the 50th Episode, Will Wesson, Andy Parry, and Jarrad McCarl headed south to Arizona. The Group explores the wonderful world of leisure, studies the unique flora and fauna, and skis the Arizona Snowbowl terrain park. Oh yeah, and Jarrad gets his ear pierced with a cactus needle. So without further introduction, check out the new episode!

 

 

Dylan Siggers: 2017 Season of Sick Days

September 27th, 2017 - Posted by willski in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

In Fernie and Beyond, Siggers Gives ‘Er a Go

Canadian Young Gun Dylan Siggers has been crushing it north of the border for years now — which is pretty impressive considering he’s only 23. From untouched pow laps deep in the backcountry, to big double backs hossed off of some booters, Dylan’s full part is pretty sick. Check it out HERE:

For Years, young Dylan has been ripping around on the EP Skis; but we somehow talked him into giving the new Sick Day 114s a go, and he seems pretty comfortable sending on those. You can learn more about those HERE.

 

Siggers and Burrrlapz

But Dylan is no one-trick pony. In fact, Dylan is the driving force behind The Burrrlapz, a small production house out of Fernie. They’ll be releasing a series of webisodes this winter. You might remember the teaser that came out a few weeks ago:

 

So keep an eye out for more from this young squadron of shredders, that seem to always be down to head out for a rip.

LJ Strenio’s 2016 Street Part

September 25th, 2017 - Posted by willski in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

Running The Gamut With LJ


LJ Strenio recently sent over his full 2016 Street Part, and not surprisingly, it’s a banger. From hefty gaps, crazy rails, and some of the more tech rail tricks ever to be put down in the streets, This part is an absolute heater.

 

A post shared by LJ Strenio (@ljstrenio) on

Set against a high energy live track, LJ’s part shows just how hard it can be to put down a segment in the streets. Watch as LJ takes slam after slam, only to come back swinging for the make. It’s a testament to LJ’s perseverance and work ethic.

But this is nothing compared to his X Games Real Ski Segment. That segment — which earned him a gold medal — features a wild array of stunts, flip ups, and tech rails, as well. But before he had the opportunity to enter Real Ski, he had to get in. Which is why he put together this 2016 Part. Because while we never had doubts about this Vermonter’s abilities in the street, some people over at ESPN needed a little extra push to get him going. And it’s a good thing they did.

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.

Level 1 Drops the Trailer for Their Newest Film

August 25th, 2017 - Posted by willski in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

Level 1 Presents Habit

It’s that time of year again! The days are getting shorter, and the air is a little more crisp in the morning. You know what that means: Ski Season is fast approaching. But what to do during the dark season? You know, that period of time between summer and the start of ski season. There’s not much to do but loaf around and nerd out over every iota of ski content and gear. Sound familiar? Well,We are all creatures of habit, after all.

At least there are ski movies. With Film Tours cruising around the country, you’ve got a guaranteed ski party practically every weekend. And nothing gets us more stoked than watching the annual offering from Level 1 Productions. This year, LJ Strenio, Khai Krepela, Will Wesson, Sami Ortlieb, and Rob Heule hopped in front of the Level 1 cameras. From LJ’s urban stuntery to Will’s creative approach and all the way to Sami and Rob’s envisioned pump track jib zone in Sunshine Village, LINE skiers ran the gambit of ski porn production. And we couldn’t be more stoked.

So be on the lookout for a HABIT Premiere near you. In the meantime, check out LJ’s X Games Real Street Part:
