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
This just in! Line Skis has teamed up with The House and others to support a new project south of the border: The Garrett Russell Experience: Another Time, Another Place!
Beginning in October, fans of our mustachioed gentleman & LINE MC Garrett Russell will be able to feast upon four, count ‘em four!, epic webisodes on Teton Gravity Research. Filming is currently on going in Bariloche, Argentina
From The House:
The world will get a glimpse into the exhilarating life and mind of Garrett Russell, the most captivating and charismatic professional skier on the planet.
“The mountain is my wife and my enemy…It consumes my life…I’ve got to learn to love it beyond fear,” says Russell.
Every summer for the past decade, Garrett Russell has been chasing winter to the Patagonian Andes as a Ski Guide for SASS Global Travel to share both his passion for skiing and his metaphysical beliefs with other skiers who are searching for a life-altering event.
In promotion of The GRE, The House will be running “The Garrett Russell Backcountry Giveaway” beginning August 15, featuring a full backcountry ski set up and other gear from project sponsors.

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.

*The Traveling Circus is Over for the season!
It’s the season six finale: Konichiwa! The Line Traveling Circus crew travels over 5,000 miles to Japan for noodles, monkeys and skiing. Part soap opera, part travel documentary, “Everybody Loves Ramen – Part One” features the antics of Will Wesson, Andy Parry, Garrett Russell and Cole Drexler traveling across Japan in search of creative features and all the noodles they can eat!
“I honestly, I don’t know the plan. We’re going to go skiing and then we’re going to drive some more and go more skiing.” – Andy Parry

ABOUT LINE TRAVELING CIRCUS:
Admission is free! No high-end production crews, annual movie sales, snowmobiles, or heli trips to AK here, just a couple of die-hard ski bums with a camera powered by more creativity, ingenuity & hyperactivity than a 3rd grade art class. This band of misfit skiers are lead by Will Wesson & Andy Parry on a year round adventure crisscrossing North America and beyond in search of an angled surfaces to ski on. It’s reality TV meets modern ski bumming, for comedy, adventure and skiing antics that proves reality is more entertaining than fiction. Each of the eight episodes per season are watched tens of thousands of times online by skiers around the world. This popularity is the reason the Line Traveling Circus has been recognized with the first ever prestigious award of “Best Webisode” at the International Freeskiing Film Festival (www.IF3.ca ).
Watch and enjoy as Garrett Russell puts the fun in Funk!
While most of us in the States were sweating from heatwave after heatwave, Ian Compton and friends made their way to Woodward at Copper where good times were to be had. The Line crew, which consisted of Ian Compton, Garrett Russell, Carrie Rossman and her brother Johnny, taught the finer elements of skiing such as boxes, spread eagles and nose blocks. Along with dropping some serious knowledge, the crew also gave out awesome swag including some Afterbangs!
Poor Andy. At least this kid crossed out what Andy was saying, saving his butt. Look at Will’s crazy eye though and even Garrett with spicy cat in tow joined in on the trio.
