Cole Drexler’s 2014 Season Edit
Cole Drexler, the 23 year old Collingwood, ON native has released his 2014 self edit and it is 5:04 minutes of 100% Canadian skiing! Join him for a journey across the globe in search of things to ski – mountains, hills, playground slides …
Don’t know Cole? Where have you been? Here’s a few things you might not know:
He loves llamas, Van Morrison & his girl. He hates Nickleback, the Boston Bruins & serious people. Seriously.
We chatted with him briefly to get a few more in-depth answers. Read more below!
1. Going to Japan for the second time with the Traveling Circus squad.
2. Filming for “Meanwhile in Canada” with Rob Heule, Mack Jones, Jay Heule, and Graeme Meiklejohn in Toronto.
3. The Outdoor Tech. team trip to Mammoth Mtn. in the spring – the best place to end the season.
4. One of the longest winters that I’ve ever had in Ontario – Blue Mtn., was open until the end of April.
5. Drake’s beautiful compact-disc that was titled, “Nothing Was the Same”
LAST SEASON, I WASN’T EXCITED ABOUT THESE 3 THINGS:
1. Being in school all winter.
2. Falling hard on my back three separate times in Japan, and missing a couple days on snow.
3. Not winning the Olympics.
I PREFER (DOGS OR CATS): Dogs for sure. Cats suck.
WHEN I GO TO THE OSCARS, MY CELEBRITY DATE WILL BE Jennifer Lawrence BECAUSE she’s a babe who likes pizza and she has a crush on me.
I DO NOT LIKE not having Drake ON MY iPod at all times.
I LIKE THE BOSTON BRUINS BECAUSE I hate every Boston’s sports team with a passion and the Bruins can suck it.
IF I SANG COUNTRY, MY BAND NAME WOULD BE The Brothers Too Turnt.
I THINK grabbing your skis on rails IS OVERRATED unless you’re Phil or Henrik and can actually make it look nice.
I THINK Jarred McCarl IS UNDERRATED BECAUSE he’s got a fresh outlook on skiing and he’s always in a good mood. Be on the look out for that name this winter.
ON NEWSCHOOLERS, I send nudes to all the pro’s.
WRITE A HAIKU ABOUT THE LAST TIME YOU WENT SKIING:
The sun is beaming
It Is the middle of May
And I’m still skiing
YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW THAT I’M allergic to brewing yeast and can’t drink beer.
IF I WENT TO THE OLYMPICS, IT’D BE FOR speed walking.

Mammoth Fish & Jibs
“Why fish or jib when you can have both? Garrett Russell is an avid angler and certainly knows his way around a terrain park. And, spring-time at Mammoth is a great time to multi-task… Jib, hike, ski, bike, shred, skate, kayak… all in the same day!
Also, spring-time is a great time in Mammoth for sightings of the LINE Traveling Circus bus… and crew. Yes, the circus is in town! This past week Will Wesson and Cole Drexler reunited with Garrett Russell, Bernie Rosow and Alex Dorszynski for some good ol’ slush slashing, steel slapping good times.
Shot entirely with one little GoPro.” – Mammoth Lakes

Konichiwa, The Last of the Skiurai!
The Line Traveling Circus travels to the land of pow, sushi, technology, more sushi, more pow, super-fast trains, sumo wresting and the rising sun; Japan! Canadians Cole Drexler and Rob Heule join Will and Andy for two weeks of all things Japanese skiing; powder, park, indoor ski-slopes and everything else in-between including but not limited to: lots of left-side-of-the-road driving, one twenty hour boat ride, a few plane flights and plenty of unidentified seafood.
The Line Skis Mountain Command Team is a mix of the most talented, unique and individual skiers in the world. How can a bunch of individuals be a team you ask? Their creativity is the bond that connects them, driving the voice of our brand and beating the drum of new ways to look at the mountain, the streets, backcountry and everywhere in between. We’re proud of these riders who every day bring something new to all aspects of skiing. Where there’s snow and enough room to slide on it, you’ll find Line MCs. Enjoy the edit and please purchase/download/watch the films in the list at the end to support the companies that support these riders and help push skiing to new levels.
From the frozen tundra of Ontario, CASG crew member Cole Drexler slays as hard as the ground in which he hails. Ok so Waterloo might be more suburbia than tundra but tundra sounds better doesn’t it? Anyways make sure to keep reading and get a grasp on how this kid from Ontario is killin’ it with his Afterbangs in his interview with SBCSkier.com
With his local band of misfits behind him and the industry turning heads and pages, just make sure you get front row when he comes to a city near you. -Max Hill
So Cole, where are you resting your head these days?
In my rez building at McMaster University, here in Hamilton, Ontario. Single beds aren’t fun though, no room for movement. I’m studying multimedia and communications, which is probably one of the easier programs only. I only have one midterm!
Where do you see that taking you?
Hopefully somewhere in the ski industry, whether it’s with filming/editing of some sort or even design work. I want to stay in this industry because it’s pimp and I’d be working with something I am actually passionate about. I don’t care for huge pay cheques as long as I’m doing something I love, skiing, and am able to live comfortably.
If you love what you do, you won’t work a day in your life. What’s your plan for the winter?
This semester I’m sticking to school, because it was the easiest thing to do for rez as first year student. That being said, I’m gonna shoot every single thing on and around campus with my homie Ralph Damman. I’m also planning to ski Blue Mountain every weekend and get in some Christmas and reading week trips. Once school’s done, I want to spend my spring in Whistler or Mammoth.
Oh and get some shit rolling with Traveling Circus again.
Who else from CASG will be spending their winter in Ontario?
Everyone will be around at some point or another. Max and Jessica are popping off doing their thing out west, but other than that the rest of us are here. I have a good feeling Matt Brindisi is going to blow up this year and I think Ralph wants to make more edits so we’ll see how that goes. We never end up filming as much as we want to but hopefully we get some more tape rolling.
How many edits do you guys plan on dropping? When can we expect the first one?
15. Realistically though, probably 4 or 5. That’s my goal at least. I want to get as many as possible out there, but at the same time we aren’t going to be putting out edits for the sake of getting something out there. If that makes sense? We have to get some good shit before our first edit drops but you guys can defintiley expect some bangin tricks you’ve never seen before.
“The first edit will be dropping November 11th, 2010. Remember the date.” – Max Hill
