The 2014 SIA Snowshow just wrapped in Denver and we’re showing off what’s in stores later this year including the all new Magnum Opus and Supernatural series.
Mag•num Opus from the Latin meaning “great work,” refers to the largest, and perhaps the best, greatest, most popular, or most renowned achievement of an artist.
From Eric Pollard’s brain comes an impossibly light powder ski with futuristic materials and over 15 years of powder ski development behind it.
“The goal of the Magnum Opus was to create a ski that had the same all mountain performance as the Opus, but with increased float. I approached the design with a few ideas on how to accomplish that; larger waist, longer length, and a new tip outline & profile”
- Eric Pollard
The Supernatural Series
The formula for freeride fun is here. Take the industry’s first, mix in proven weight savings technology, freeride specific geometry in a collection of widths for any condition on Earth.
It’s time to make some new friends who can keep up
The Supernatual Series incorporates a full height & lenght 80 durometer Elastomer sidewall over the edges to absorb vibration & shock for a smooth solid ride.

We should be saying thank YOU Eric Pollard and the rest of the Nimbus crew. Eric Pollard has been an innovator from the beginning, in front of and behind the camera (as well as the editing computer). Enjoy the new En Route movie!
Thank You is exactly what the title states; a thank you to everyone who watches Nimbus.
Thank You begins by interviewing individuals from every walk of life about how they predict the winter. The movie then recaps the best of the last three years of Nimbus. Enjoy!
Nimbus Independent was started in 2007 by Eric Pollard in collaboration with Pep Fujas, Andy Mahre, and Chris Bencheter. The four like minded skiers began Nimbus to bring a different perspective to the world of ski movies.

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.
There are some out there (the fortunate few) who are getting powder days in as I am writing this. For the rest of us who are patiently waiting for snow, don’t feel like hiking 2000 feet or have 9-5 jobs, here are two episodes of KGB Productions’ Wyoming Triumph to keep your powder fix at bay. Sit back and enjoy Episode 1, which is a rerun from last year, and the brand new Episode 2!
Part 1: Snowing in Jackson (RERUN)
Part 2: Early Season in Wyoming (NEW)
For more clips and info, check out Wyoming Triumph’s site. Make sure to only vacation in WY, not move there. We don’t want to be responsible for pissing off locals.
In the latest string of headlines about Line’s own Andy Parry, private emails with Powder’s Intern will surely hurt Parry’s boyscout image. Not only does he paraphrase profane language but he even had the audacity to claim his disdain for the state of Idaho saying “Idaho? What the f*ck is that? Is that where my potatoes come from? So far the most time I have spent in that state was driving to Hood from Salt Lake.”Well at least he didn’t whip out his Chronic Cryptonites and jib old people at a park, right?
Go check out the full scandalous story HERE.
Oh and make sure to scroll down and read the comments from the good ol’ boys that aren’t fans of this scandal and how it degrades skiers everywhere.
Turkey Heliski Road Trip 09
In the beginning of March, me, my two best friends, a big bandog Buzi and my 17 yaers old Jeep Cherokee, we started a trip to very east of Turkey.
A beautiful sunset on our way
First we spended couple days in Bulgaria, which is on the road. We had some very nice riding there, especialy Rilski lakes was great like all the years before. ( I am coming to Rila mountains almost every winter for already 7 years). We did a lot of footage and filming here in cooperation with Moab production. But after visit of Turkish embassy in Sofia, where we realized, that there should be no problems on the road, we left Bulgaria, crossed Bosporus channel and kept on direction east.
After many many kilometres we finaly reached under first big mountainchain with biggest skiresort called Mt.Palandoken. It is a very nice resort with a lot of lifts and almost nobody is riding off-piste here so you don´t have to hurry up for first lines. An ancient university town Erzurum is the capital of this part of Turkey. You can take a bus or cab from the center and in ten minutes you are at the bottomliftstation.
We got good news from helibase, there is snowing as hell and it should be clearing up tomorrow.
We have to leave imediately Erzurum, cause of there is another five hundred kms through deep valleys and over mountain passes waiting us.
Many of the passes were closed cause of avalanches, so we had to find out new roads. The travel around the Kacskarmountains took us two days and we boiled the engine threetimes.
When we saw the coast of Black sea and the city Trabzon, we were very happy, there is only next hundred kms left.
Snowshoe Hiking is pretty exhausting!!
There are lot´s of faces like this one.
Ayder helibase is a center of Turkeyheliski( Check for www.Turkeyheliski.com)- a Swiss company providing heliskiing on the highest level. The boss Nicolas Clerk was very kind to us and gave us some flights for free. We have got one of the most experienced pilots of the world, guy from New Zealand with 34 seazons of heliskiflights. The drop-offs were just exact and perfect. We had so much fun enjoying our runs.
On the way back we visited the northest point of Turkey- peinsula Sinop, Istanbul- city of Islam culture and on the way to Greek we made a stop on lonely coast. We were riding with my jeep next to the sea and pulling each other on a rope behind it. Surfing the sea with my Prophets130 was one of the greatest adventure of this trip. I had no clue before , that you can ride the sea with normal skis so easily.
Prophets, also good as sandskis
It was spring time in its full power, when we came back to Bulgaria, so my friend invited us to his boat. Rafting in Bulgaria on the Struma river was the final goal of our trip. We made five thousands kms in eighteen days. Heavy days, theese ones.
I hope you liked the story!
Have a great summer!
