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
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

Watch More East Coast Hardcore Real Stuff…Part Two!
The Line Traveling Circus crew, now filming & releasing content for their sixth season, continues their journey in the latest release, “More East Coast Hardcore Real Stuff – Part Two” Join Will Wesson, Andy Parry, Cole Drexler, Charlie Dayton, Erik Olson & Shane McFalls as they wrap up their trip to the Northeast. Andy checks off a bucket-list line before the van and crew heads to Massachusetts and Pennsylvania to ski some park and eat some pizza.
What people are saying about the latest release:
“Andy doing something crazy since ’95″ – SkiWithMeBro
“ALWAYS PUTS A SMILE ON MYE[sic] FACE, every time” – pâl jensen
“Thanks you smelly beauties!” – GoodOleChrusty
Erik Olson is the East Coast’s Candide Thovex, without the mittens. Beautifully angled form, hands forward, knees bent. His body always matches the power of the turn—all the time—a style only a handful have been able to achieve. Olson’s humble start, on 200-foot rope tows in Western New York farm country, bred the quiet honesty with which he has skied for years. He’s earned money to ski working in a can factory and lived in his car for 135 consecutive days at Mount Hood. He pointedly avoids promoting himself, but also landed the first switch 1080 in pipe skiing history in 2006, and has more footage in the Meathead Films archive than any other athlete. Similar to Candide, his dedication to skiing is earnest, deeply personal, and full of integrity.

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.
We gave Will Wesson a goPro camera and said have a good summer, he did. This video is the outcome of a summer of skiing, snowboarding and living at Mt Hood, Oregon with friends.
