First! Colter Hinchliffe and co. claim a first descent on Capitol Peak!


LINE MC Colter Hinchliffe snagged a FIRST! on Capital Peak on June 5th in what he and the crew that accompanied him have dubbed “Peg Leg,” a treacherous “fall, you die” descent – the culmination of a 14,131 technical climb one of colorful Colorado’s peaks in the Elk Mountains.

The feat was certainly full of “pucker” moments as described by Hinchliffe.

“You look over the side [of the ridge] and you’re like, ‘What did we do? We bit off so much here, how’re we going to get down?’”

“J, I have to talk to you about the ski, the biggest ski ever.”

So begins an email written from Eric Pollard to Line Skis founder Jason Levinthal. The excerpts that follow give a glimpse of a goosebumps-inducing plea to fulfill a vision. The email is a golden nugget of skiing history.

“Line has always been the most progressive company in skiing. This year we need to jump to the future and capitalize. I am a prophet, and I can see that if we do, we will set a trend in skiing that everyone will follow. We have to act first.”

Pollard goes on to describe some of the specifics of a new ski, including dimensions, and lays out his plan to crush heli trips the world over. He spoke of “first track fakie 720s and 540s off cliffs,” from Alaska to Norway. “I know you think that this ski is crazy, but please have faith. Please make this your main objective with me. We will honestly change everything,” Pollard’s message read.

Precisely five hours later, Levinthal responds, “I’m feelin’ it! As you wish… prophet.” And so the Prophet 130 was born. It would go on to influence a series of skis that dominated modern freeride ski design, winning countless awards and opening the door for what we call freeride skis today.

The now 12-year-old exchange exemplifies the role that Line Skis has played throughout freeskiing’s rise to the mainstream. It’s a brand that’s never been afraid to stir the pot. Experience gained along the way now informs the production of quality sticks that suit a variety of different skiing styles.

“We have two decades of freeride and freestyle innovation under our belts. We’ve been there through the rise and the changing tides of skiing,” says Josh Malczyk, global brand director.  READ MORE >>

Missing those warm summer days? Are you depressed with the onset of fall and the approach of winter?

Neither are we. For those of you, like us, who had to brave the heat of summer and anticipate the first snowfall, it can be an awful waiting game. Thankfully, Will Wesson’s international adventures in pursuit of snow kept us satiated!

Will’s travels are documented in his five part series Summer On Snow, featured by Freeskier Magazine and presented below.

Hopefully it tides you over until your local hill is up and running!


Episode 1 – Will at Woodward Copper for Line/Full Tilt Week


Armed with nothing but a couple POV cameras, Will plans to document his travels around the world, focusing on culture, travel and skiing (duh!). The first episode finds Will at Woodward Copper for Line/Full Tilt week with Garrett Russell, Trevor Jansen, Jon Hartman, Erik Olson, Josh Wong and tons of stoked campers. Enjoy the video above and be sure to keep an eye out for more from Will throughout the summer.


Episode 2 – Hot Laps @ Windells Camp


In the second episode of his summer video blog, Will Wesson heads to Windells Camp for some hot laps atop the glacier. Upon arrival, he meets up with the likes of Chris Logan, Karl Fostvedt, Andy Parry, Magnus Granér, Tosh Peters, Jason Arens and many more. The crew proceeds to get tricky up and down the lane with tech rails, impressive lines, and good ol’ fashion summertime vibes.

Will would like to extend his thanks Catman Andy Parry for filming him. You rule, Andy!


Episode 3 – Les Deux Alpes for Kumi Yama Slopestyle


Will Wesson once again proves that he’s having a kickass summer in the latest episode of his Summer on Snow video blog. This time, he heads to France’s Les Deux Alpes for what ended up being the final installment of the Kumi Yama slopestyle contest. While weather derailed some of his ski plans, the crew was still able to spend their down days cliff jumping, wakeboarding and taking in the French countryside. Be sure to watch Will’s awesome wakeboard wipeout, which takes place right around the 1:50 mark.


Episode 4 – Whistler for Line Week @ Camp of Champions


The dude doesn’t stop. From Colorado to Oregon, Whistler, France and beyond, Will is skiing his ass off this summer. The latest episode of his video blog finds him in Whistler, taking advantage of the awesome set up at Camp of Champions for Line Skis week. Featuring Max Hill, Dom Laporte, Rob Heule (and his alter ego, Blading Bert), Erik Olson and many more, the edit sums up all there is to love about summer skiing.


Episode 5 – Retreat to South America


Between Oregon, Colorado, Whistler, various areas throughout South America and beyond—Will Wesson has been traveling the globe in style in search for summertime shredding. The results? Incredibly successful.

In the fifth and final installment of “Summer on Snow,” Wesson retreats to South America to get the goods and catch some air with Alexi Godbout and company. Enjoy watching the crew as they flaunt their skills and receive a variety of hearty Chilean face shots.

After stomping this 450 disaster, LJ could have quit for the day. Instead he wanted to make a bigger disaster and ended his season. Photo by Abbott.

“I hate when I fall asleep and I think I’m not going to remember today. I’m sitting here right now, and I’m tucking this away. I’m going to remember today.” It’s sometime after midnight, and LJ Strenio is lying on his back in a small bed at a hostel in Helsinki, Finland. His left leg is raised up, encased from ankle to thigh by an enormous cast. Twelve hours before, his life was different. “My whole life was get as many shots as I can right now. Push it. Then get ready to compete again, and then film again. Send it, send it, send it. Now my whole life is 180 degrees different.” continue reading
