Watch Colter Hinchliffe in the latest “Behind The Line” from TGR
A new episode of Behind The Line featuring Dash Longe, Colter Hinchliffe, and Dana Flahr just dropped on tetongravity.com! ––
This past winter Dash Longe, Colter Hinchcliffe, and Dana Flahr traveled to Sella Nevea, Italy to ski one of the snowiest winters on the record. The trio stayed at the Rifugio Gilberti, a hut situated in the middle of the mountains of northeast Italy. Using the rifugio as the base the group skied a full 360 degrees around them. This included Dash stomping some mini-spines and Colter throwing down one of the most creative lines of the year.
Watch & Enjoy!

Blister Gear Goes In Deep with the Supernatural
This season, we released the All-New and award winning Supernatural series – a hard charging freeride ski built and expanded from the much loved Prophet.
We could go on-and-on about our new favorite all-mountain charger but don’t take our word on it; take theirs! > Blister Gear Review provides one of our favorite in-depth reviews!
“The ski provides a VERY fun, interesting mix of playful / poppy and directional “chargy” skiing. I was even willing to spin several 3’s on the 108.” – Will Brown
“The Supernatural 108 feels quicker and does not ski as heavy” – Jonathan Ellsworth
“Tipping the skis on edge, the 108 wil hook up and begin to pull across the fall line more quickly, and with more energy” – Will Brown

For those of you who might not be entirely familiar with Blister Gear Review, the collection of reviewers pride themselves on honest to goodness with their reviews – “the typical BLISTER review is around 1500 words. We will give you our honest opinion, and we will back it up with detailed analysis” boasts the site.

The Best Playful All-Mountain Ski – The Sir Francis Bacon
“For those who like the looser, more forgiving feel of a tail rockered ski, or who want a light and playful ski to trick around the mountain.
Cliff notes version of Jason Hutchins’ reviews of the 184cm and 190cm Bacon: Of all the skis I’ve ridden, I’d call the Bacon the most versatile one-ski quiver option currently available for the playfully-minded, all-mountain skier.”
“The Pandora is a versatile, every day ski for softer snow conditions. For a 110mm underfoot ski, the Pandora still carves nicely on piste, but is an absolute blast in fresh snow, soft chop, and more playful, open terrain.”
“If you’re looking for a powder ski to take out on deep days to search for natural features to spin, flip, and drag, I can’t think of a better ski for the job than the Line Magnum Opus.”
We’re a big fan of their A/B reviews too! – See their recent of the Supernatural 108.
The Tell A Friend Tour is coming! The Tell A Friend Tour is coming!
Don’t know what the Tell A Friend Tour is? Well, we went straight to the source – Andy Parry – to get you all the need-to-know-info!
Read on >>
What is the Tell A Friend Tour, Where is it headed and Who’s going?
Tell A Friend Tour is a freeskiing park tour that travels to resorts film, ski with fans, and then hold a free raffle/pizza party. This year we are visiting resorts in VT, MA, CT, PA, WV, OH, MN, and WI. Ross Imburgia, Charlie Dayton, Ian Compton, Cole Drexler, Allan Lam, and other Line Skis regional riders.
Why? Why create the Tell A Friend Tour?
Over the last seven years of filming Line Traveling Circus, we visited a lot of resorts other people never really go to. A lot of these places had tons of kids that are really into freeskiing but they aren’t really on any ones radar. These skiers are the bread and butter of the ski industry and it only makes sense to bring a ski event directly to them.
TAFT represents what freeskiing was when I started in 2002. Fun, but also serious about progression because your hungry for it. It was about learning a new trick with a bunch of friends and pushing each other because it was fun. None of us really went out of our way to “train” for comps but still competed at local events, and used them for a source of community more then anything. It’s true freeskiing, and that what I want to show the next generation. Not comp skiing, not film skiing – just freeskiing.
With the Traveling Circus, you’ve criss-crossed the country multiple times – What are the top five bits of advice you’d give anyone who’s about to head out on the open road?
1. Need dental floss? Rip a small strand of the elastic out of a sock.
2. Don’t be a tool to fast food. Find a grocery store.
3. Download audio books for long trips.
4. When driving at night place a small dimly lit LED over your head.
5. Avoid drinking things like Monster, RockStar and Redbull All the sugar and other stuff they put in those will just make you crash harder, and feel sick. Slowly sip coffee, and get a 5 hour energy.
What’s your favorite stop?
I’m really looking forward to all the stops. Each one is going to have a different crowd of skiers, and things set up. Can’t really say I have a favorite stop but last year we had the best showing at Ski Sundown, CT and had a really good crew of kids at Butternut, MA.
In 140 characters or less – Why should we go to TAFT?
Come to TAFT to have fun skiing, eat pizza, and win free stuff!
