The 2014 Line Skis Summer Camp expedition has wrapped up! For over the past six weeks, the Line Traveling Circus van has made a circuit to the top summer camp destinations in North America, traveling over 6,000+ miles. Here’s a look back at all the fun that took place!
Woodward At Copper
Camp of Champions
This just in! Line Skis has teamed up with The House and others to support a new project south of the border: The Garrett Russell Experience: Another Time, Another Place!
Beginning in October, fans of our mustachioed gentleman & LINE MC Garrett Russell will be able to feast upon four, count ‘em four!, epic webisodes on Teton Gravity Research. Filming is currently on going in Bariloche, Argentina
From The House:
The world will get a glimpse into the exhilarating life and mind of Garrett Russell, the most captivating and charismatic professional skier on the planet.
“The mountain is my wife and my enemy…It consumes my life…I’ve got to learn to love it beyond fear,” says Russell.
Every summer for the past decade, Garrett Russell has been chasing winter to the Patagonian Andes as a Ski Guide for SASS Global Travel to share both his passion for skiing and his metaphysical beliefs with other skiers who are searching for a life-altering event.
In promotion of The GRE, The House will be running “The Garrett Russell Backcountry Giveaway” beginning August 15, featuring a full backcountry ski set up and other gear from project sponsors.

Understory by Max Hammer
LINE MC Max Hammer is known for skiing creative lines at Jackson Hole (click here to see him ski) but that creativity doesn’t end when the tram closes. Max graduated from Dartmouth last year and put together this amazing animation for his final project for all to watch.
“Most of the info is on that page, but basically it’s a completely handmade stop-motion animated movie. It’s also almost entirely edited in-camera, so all the setup, lighting, movement, and whatnot was created frame-by-frame without much aid from robots or computers.”
Almost Ablaze – A New Film from Teton Gravity Research
Teton Gravity Research has just released a trailer for their fall release, “Almost Ablaze.” Watch LINE MC’s Max Hammer & Colter Hinchliffe join a stacked cast & crew for TGR’s latest endeavor
“Almost Ablaze is a global odyssey combining state-of-the-art cinematography and the most progressive riding on The Planet. Experience a new level of sensory overload as each athlete is wired for sound, immersing the audience completely in the moment. Watch as athletes push the edge to realize a heightened state.
Almost Ablaze highlights stunning locations, next-level riding, and the globetrotting lifestyle of these thrill-seeking athletes. The crew sets up camp deep in the Teton Range hitting 5,000-foot dream lines all on foot. Check out urban riding in the war-torn Winter Olympic venues of Sarajevo. Explore the massive untapped terrain of Sella Nevea, Italy during a record winter where they struggle to keep lifts and chalets from completely disappearing into the snow. Finally, feel the madness as TGR’s full cast of athletes meets in Revelstoke for a mind-blowing session producing some of the most diverse riding in the world. Almost Ablaze takes you beyond the boundaries. Experience a rarely seen state of being and level of excitement where one missed step will result in total chaos.
Meet Jon Hartman
Jon Hartman cannot whistle. Jon Hartman has never met a burrito he did not like. Jon Hartman loves whiskey, his wife and metal. Jon Hartman is one of the recent additions to the Line Skis team. Welcome.
Jon made the trek up the I70 corridor to join Will, Erik & Garrett for the LINE takeover at Woodward Copper earlier this summer:
Jon Hartman is also a graphic artist.
“In those brief and elusive times when I’m neither skiing, drinking, nor wreaking general havoc…I’m arting. Inspired by my fuller-time hobbies, outlined above, I illustrate those things that alter perspective….and somehow this is also my job. Enjoy some of my recent work, and check out more at iheartwunderwerkz.com.” - Jon Hartman

A Walk in the Park
“Niklas Eriksson spent some time in Park City this past winter, and it was the perfect opportunity to link with 4bi9 Media and AJ Dakoulas to film some hot laps. It has been 2 years since featuring Niklas in a Jiberish edit and with his talent he was long overdue for A Walk in the Park of his own.
Enjoy.” – Jiberish
“Some shots from my 1 week vacation in LAAX.
Riders: Ortlieb Sammi, Horak Martin, Ragettli Andri, Skála Marek, Mahler Kai, Stromkova Zuzana, Bosch Fabian, Scherlin Oscar and Jurecka Richie.
Thanks for watching and sharing.” – Martin Bernard
Kaunertal Spring Shred
“The last couple of weeks have been sick in Austria. We headed up to Kaunertal glacier to enjoy some slushy parklaps together with Lukas Schäfer, Tom Ritsch, Christian Stadler and myself! Enjoy some late season fun with the boys!” – Roy Kittler
Wintertide – A film by KSM Collective
LINE MC Dylan Siggers teamed up with Zac Moxley and Kalum Ko to compete in the Intersection Film competition during the World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler, British Columbia. Given only seven days to shoot, edit and produce a ski and/or snowboard short film, the crew had to make sure that the resulting film contained at least thirty seconds of park footage, thirty seconds of Whistler Blackcomb in-bound terrain and be shot within 100km of Whistler and 75% of all footage must be on snow.
“We were given 7-days to produce, shoot and edit a 5-7 minute ski/snowboard film shot with-in 100km of Whistler.
This our film, “Wintertide”, for the 2014 World Ski and Snowboard Festival’s ‘Intersection’.
