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
Meet Jon Hartman
Jon Hartman cannot whistle. Jon Hartman has never met a burrito he did not like. Jon Hartman loves whiskey, his wife and metal. Jon Hartman is one of the recent additions to the Line Skis team. Welcome.
Jon made the trek up the I70 corridor to join Will, Erik & Garrett for the LINE takeover at Woodward Copper earlier this summer:
Jon Hartman is also a graphic artist.
“In those brief and elusive times when I’m neither skiing, drinking, nor wreaking general havoc…I’m arting. Inspired by my fuller-time hobbies, outlined above, I illustrate those things that alter perspective….and somehow this is also my job. Enjoy some of my recent work, and check out more at iheartwunderwerkz.com.” - Jon Hartman

Crans-Montana Spring Session 2014 – Recap
Will Wesson and Sämi Ortlieb headed to the Crans Montana Spring Session this past month for more fun in the snow. As translated from the original post on Zapiks: “Here is the final edit of the first Crans-Montana Spring Session. After a month of good weather, summer temperatures, winter decided to make his return for the Spring Session. But it will not stop the riders coming shredder slopestyle banked established by our shapers!”
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.

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 ).

Pictures are funnier when you’re having fun with friends.
At the beginning of the year, Line Skis & Newschoolers.com teamed up to find the best, the most fun group photo of friends enjoying skiing. Thus the Line Skis x Newschoolers GET IN THE VAN Group Photo Contest was born.
After one round of open voting, the top 5 crews were announced and sent to the Traveling Circus crew for them to review and pick the winners.
The winning crew would receive 4 pairs of skis & pointy sticks with grips!
So without further delay, we’re happy to announce that the winners of the Line Skis x Newschoolers GET IN THE VAN Group Photo Contest are…
Keenan Desplanques, Max Ickes, Vayle Townsend, Nico Schiavone and Garrett Coleman!
“This shot took about 8 attempts. Cant believe that this is actually going to be a part of the Line Traveling Circus!” – Keenan Desplanques
