New York Times Magazine Article

The New York Times article crediting Line for pioneering “the next extreme sport”. It coincidentally was the same time that Karhu skis purchased Line from Jason Levinthal. Line & Jason moved to Burlington, VT that year with the much needed financing & manufacturing to take the company to the next level.

First published photo of rail slide on skis

Back in 1997, before people were skiing backwards, before 110+mm powder skis, when only skateboarders and snowboarders slid rails, I was on a mission to session this rail on skis. It was in downtown Albany, NY where I grew up & Jeff Winterton shot the photo that became the first ever published photo of a rail slide by a skier. I was extra stoked it was legit urban, you got to love the jeans & tee shirt. At the time I was doing everything possible to be a skier that didn’t do what skiers do.
