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. Featuring Max Hill, Dom Laporte, Rob Heule (and his alter ego, Blading Bert), Erik Olson and many more, the edit sums up all there is to love about summer skiing.
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.

Temps are rising, gas is even MORE expensive and Windell’s has put out their first session edit.
Summer is now official.
Couple things to take notice:
- Andy Parry has left Pizza Hut and is now back on snow where he belongs, teaching kids weird stuff and backflips
- Jeff Curry’s effortless style is one thing we don’t think his students can replicate
- Will Wesson is absolutely ridiculous… he may be more comfortable on rails then most of us are on snow
Also make sure to check out the CRASH EDIT from Windells.
For those of you who haven’t made the summer pilgrimage to the mythical mountain that is Mt. Hood or are still thinking about it, here’s a playlist of our best memories from Hood over the years, just to push you over the fence.
Once finished, we suggest you get a crew together, save some gas money and pack a tent. See you there!

Not only do we love Halloween for its epic parties, we also enjoy smashing pumpkins with Chronics! Line MC and Windell’s Head Coach Jeff Curry and friend Drew Stewart show off their version of Halloween from the barren slopes Hood.
The Line Skis Mountain Command Team is a mix of the most talented, unique and individual skiers in the world. How can a bunch of individuals be a team you ask? Their creativity is the bond that connects them, driving the voice of our brand and beating the drum of new ways to look at the mountain, the streets, backcountry and everywhere in between. We’re proud of these riders who every day bring something new to all aspects of skiing. Where there’s snow and enough room to slide on it, you’ll find Line MCs. 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.
