Eric Pollard’s Travel Top Ten

November 21st, 2014 - Posted by danbrown in LINE Skis News

Professional skier & artist Eric Pollard is a world traveler, an explorer of the far-off and a seeker of deep snow. Pollard has logged countless miles finding the hidden stashes of powder, documenting them on film for web series and feature films. In honor of our partnership with Alaska Airlines, we thought we’d ask him to put together a “top ten” of everything and anything travel related – some of it a “how to” and some of it a means to inspire you to get out into the wilds.

Here’s his compilation of all things travel:

2. Sunglasses

3. Trunks

4. Camera

5. Toothbrush.

“The Best Ski I’ve Ever Designed.” – Eric Pollard

WATCH: Eric Pollard discusses the Magnum Opus


After years of development, we’re happy to offer the Magnum Opus (view product) for the 2015 winter season. Since 2010, skier & artist Eric Pollard has tested countless iterations in order to craft what is now known as the Magnum Opus, the best and lightest powder ski.

“The goal of the Magnum Opus was to create a ski that had the same feel as the Mr. Pollard’s Opus ski, but with increased float,” said Pollard. “I approached the design with a few ideas on how to accomplish that: larger waist width, longer length and a new tip outline and profile.”


Award Winning. DSV Aktiv & Freeskier Magazine’s 2015 Editor’s Pick

The Magnum Opus incorporates the new Cloud Core, a futuristic material which combines balsa and flax seed composite to give the ski its unfathomable “lighter-than-air” feel. Additionally, the Early Rise and Early Taper tip shape and profile design creates a perfect powder ski which floats through the deepest snow with minimal effort. At just 4,200 grams (9 pounds, 4 ounces) per pair, the 188-centimeter long, 124-millimeter waisted Magnum Opus sets a new standard for lightness and versatility for powder skis.

Coordinates – Nimbus Independent’s New Short Film

August 26th, 2014 - Posted by danbrown in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

Nimbus Independent has just released its digital short, “Coordinates.” Watch it now below!

From Nimbus Independent:

“Our latest movie ‘ [COORDINATES] ‘ was shot entirely on the GoPro Hero 3+ camera, by Eric Pollard, Chris Benchetler, and Pep Fujas. Filmed on location in Hokkaido, Japan – Pemberton, British Columbia – and Mt. Hood, Oregon. Nimbus collaborated with artist and producer “Tired Eyes” to create a unique soundtrack scored specifically for the production. This movie is a brief look at skiing from each athlete’s perspective, and is an attempt to give our audience a better idea of what to expect when our two year movie project ‘After The Sky Falls’ drops next fall.

‘We don’t take ourselves too seriously at Nimbus, for us it’s all about capturing skiing in a way that feels like a day on the hill with friends.’”

The Compass series captures a visually stunning full spectrum experience from ski trips to three beautiful countries: Russia, Italy, and Japan. The contrasting culture, mountain shape, terrain, snow quality, food, language, music, pace of life and architecture all play into what it feels like to ski and travel abroad. For Nimbus, the series is a further departure from a mass appeal approach to ski movie making.

Nimbus Independent was started in 2007 by Eric Pollard in collaboration with Chris Benchetler, Pep Fujas and Andy Mahre. The four like minded skiers began Nimbus to bring a different perspective to skiing.
