Level 1’s Pleasure


It feels good. Slamming into concrete walls, risking the backcountry unknown, being broke on the road… Some would call it hedonistic behavior, we call it living the dream, and this cast of characters delivers a vibrant depiction of this so-called sport of skiing. With a local tourist mentality, the simple joys are found near and far. From India, Switzerland and Japan, to British Columbia, Washington DC, and Alaska, it’s business in the front, party in the back, and no one is phoning it in. Level 1 continues to surprise with another must watch ski film in a lineage of classics, for your viewing PLEASURE

DOWNLOAD IT NOW!

Watch your favorite LINE athletes & more in Level 1 Production’s 17th release, “PLEASURE!”

Will Wesson, Sami Ortlieb, Khai Krepela, LJ Strenio, Rob Heule, Pär Peyben Hägglund, Garrett Russell and friends.

(Pleasure) should be considered mandatory viewing this season for all ski movie fans. Combing artistry, athleticism, creativity, and a thoughtful theme carried throughout, it’s as tight and as entertaining as a ski film can get. But it’s also propped up with no ego; just having fun and skiing with your friends. Though it’s a simple concept that’s difficult to translate to film, Berman and fellow producers Freedle Coty and Jonny Durst succeed in spades.” – Matt Hansen, Powder Magazine

It seems year after year Level 1 steps up their films and Pleasure is no exception. This film is pure good times with great skiers filmed in unique locations. I’ve rewatched the film five times.”  – Mike Rogge, Outside Online

Damn, it’s a beautiful example of ski filmmaking. I was really impressed last year by the quality of Small World’s production and Level 1 have taken another step up here.” – Adam Spensley, Newschoolers.com

We really didn’t know the film would be this awesome, this unique, this crowd-pleasing.” – Freeskier Magazine

Another Time, Another Place – The GRE Finale

September 24th, 2015 - Posted by in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

The Garrett Russell Experience

Recently released, “The Garrett Russell Experience, Another Time, Another Place” Episode 4 heads to Japan with one of Line’s most recognized personalities and skiers – Garrett Russell.

As we’re introduced in the first episode, the question is asked, “Who is Garrett Russell?”

Who is Garrett Russell is not as accurate or thought provoking a question as what is Garrett Russell? Garrett “G-Funk” Russell is an artist, an impressionist, a warrior poet in the narrative of skiing. Within that storyline he stands out as its most captivating character and most inspired creative director. He is both the ink on the page and the writer. He accentuates his passage through the lines with fresh, inventive technique and style. Each turn and diverse movement is filled with his life’s experience.

The LINE SKIS Blend
<< Garrett rides the LINE Blend >>

His memoirs are written on the faces of the Andes, the Sierras, the San Juans, through countless pillows of white. The epitaphs for his memories are inscribed in the smoky trundles of snow that ribbon off his shoulders as he cuts and smears. The moment is king and Garrett combines his inner vision with the contours of reality. He accentuates this blend through integrated creative impulse within every movement, carving contrast in the conventional without alienating his audience. His skiing is relatable and tangible. It is art at its highest form, with the deepest meaning, and the utmost accessibility. GFunk is a DIY Picasso. His composition is within the audience’s grasp, explicating the elements of the human experience through inspired movement and inspiring methodology. In Bro-ese it is described as “steeze,” in laymen’s terms, “style.” But honestly, it is best described as The Garrett Russell Experience. As Garrett says, “How the body moves in time and motion is art. I like to use skis as a motion of art.”

Wordy? Yes, but as you’ll see – a perfect explanation of what you’re about to watch. Enjoy!

The TC Crew’s last minute scrambling lands them in the mid-west where they find rope-tows, road-kill and roller-coasters. Watch this episode and you’ll surely be saying, “That’s Different.”

“Why’d you take your socks off?” – Will
“I had ‘em on since yesterday and they’re my ski socks…so it was like, itchy.” – Andy

ABOUT LINE TRAVELING CIRCUS:

Admission is free! No high-end production crews, annual movie sales, snowmobiles or AK heli trips here.

Criss-crossing the globe in search of angled surfaces to ski on, the Traveling Circus is part reality TV, part ski bumming. For comedy, adventure and skiing antics that prove truth is more entertaining than fiction make sure not to miss an episode. Every online webisode is watched hundreds of thousands of times by skiers around the world.

The Garrett Russell Experience

July 28th, 2014 - Posted by in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

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.

Stay Tuned for More Information!

Mammoth Fish & Jibs

May 9th, 2014 - Posted by in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News


Mammoth Fish & Jibs


Garrett Russell, Will Wesson & Cole Drexler spent some time in the sun in Mammoth Lakes, California recently. Check out their cameo in the recently released Visit Mammoth edit!

“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


Garrett & Will were riding the new 2015 Chronic. Cole was riding the 2015 Blend. Get in touch with your local ski shop and demand them in your shop!
