October 14th, 2016 - Posted by Dan Brown in LINE Skis News, LINE Team News

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


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,

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

G’Day Mate! The Traveling Circus heads south to the continent of Australia, land of the majestic and noble Kangaroo in the latest episode of Season Seven, “Chunder Down Under.” Watch Will Wesson, Andy Parry, Max Hill and filmer Shane McFalls immerse themselves in local culture and music (Who gave Andy a didgeridoo?) while exploring the resorts of Thredbo and Mt. Buller with local skiers Doodle Dowdall, Adam Kroenert & Talae Rodden and always meeting fascinating characters like Disco Stu.


Admission is free! No high-end production crews, annual movie sales, snowmobiles or AK heli trips here. Powered by more creativity, ingenuity and hyperactivity than a 3rd grade art class, this band of misfit skiers is led by die-hard ski bums Will Wesson and Andy Parry. 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. This is the reason why the International Freeskiing Film Festival (IF3) presented the Line Traveling Circus with the first-ever “Best Webisode” award in 2010 and 2011. 3,000,000 views and counting!
