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.

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.

Less is More! LJ & Will & Level 1’s New Film

August 25th, 2014 - Posted by danbrown in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

Level 1 is set to release their 15th ski film this fall. Shot on location all over the world, the film showcases the best of the best of ski trickery including LINE athletes, LJ Strenio, Will Wesson & Sig Tveit. We spoke with 2/3rds of the aforementioned talent (Will & LJ) to ask some questions about what we might expect this Fall when Less hits theaters. Here’s what they had to say!

A: LJ Strenio P: Chip Kalback

Tell us about last season: Where’d you go? When and with who?

Last season was hectic. I spent the better part of the first half of the season competing at World Cups and traveling for some early season rail jams; flying as far as London for the weekend for one. Around halfway through the season however, I completely switched focus and started putting a segment together and spent about a month between the East Coast and the Midwest during the coldest streak of the Winter with Level 1. I also got out into the backcountry for a few trips but got skunked on snow a couple times and didn’t yield much there. There were a lot of struggles but I’m excited about what we got. – LJ

New England with Khai Krepela in December.  Wisconsin with LJ and Will Berman for 2 days in January and New York with LJ in February. – Will

Any particularly memorable moments?

Having an entire day alone to be a tourist in Londdon before flying home with a stack of 2000 English pounds in my pocket was fun. Two days earlier, I was eating thanksgiving dinner with my girlfriend and sister and then I all of a sudden I had a bunch of goofy money and a new European city to explore. More hilariously however was signing autographs in Wisconsin for the cop that was kicking us out. He had received a call and so was obligated to boot us but was super interested and once he heard who we were and what we did he was stoked so Berman gave him a free DVD and he demanded an autograph. Most smiles I’ve seen in a while getting booted from a feature, and we got the shot first. – LJ

Seeing people surfing with snow on the ground in Boston was cool.  Also meeting random people who have no idea what you are up to is always entertaining. – Will

How much involvement did you have in the creative process?

Level 1 allows us input but I don’t physically edit my segment so very little. – LJ

I rough cut my entire segment and the level 1 guys change it up to make it better. – Will

 Which tour stops do you plan on being at?

I’ll be at the Salt Lake City stop as always! Sounds like I’ll probably be heading to Spokane as well for a stop there. Got a bunch of new friends up there so I love making the trip up. -LJ

I’ll miss most of them while I’m down under filming for TC, but I’m hoping to get to the the High Five Festival and maybe IF3 Innsbruck. – Will

What can those watching expect from Less?

From my experiences last winter with Level 1, I can tell you that this year’s movie really shows that skiing is finally starting to get more creative in the things we find and do and not solely focused on just bigger and better. Many of the features and tricks aren’t just stacked upon from last year but new original ideas. – LJ

No idea, I haven’t seen it.  I’m sure there will be no shortage of creativity. – Will

Where are you now? What are you doing?

I’m currently in Vermont visiting between friends’ weddings and family weddings. However I’m headed back to Utah next week which I’m excited for because I haven’t been home in the last 4 months. – LJ

I’m sitting inside an apartment complex (free Internet!) outside El Colorado ski resort in Chile. – Will

What are five things people should know about filming?

Five? haha uh… 1) It’s long, tedious and yields a few seconds of footage for a few days of work. 2) It allows you to ski how you want and portrait yourself how you want. 3) If you’re doing something new or cool it doesn’t have to be in a huge segment, you can throw it online and you boom you’re influencing skiing. 4) Filming an entire segment is more expensive than anyone except the riders spending all their money realizes. 5)There’s no right way to do it, though some people may think there is, just different styles. – LJ

It’s never as easy as it seems. The weather can make or break you.  Scheduling is never perfect and some segments are made in one week.  Sometimes you can do a lot with a little.  The right attitude goes a long way. – Will

What are your plans for next season?

A little less competing and a lot more filming. – LJ

Ski a lot with cool people in cool places! – Will
