Watch Seth Morrison in ‘The Ordinary Skier’

The legendary Seth Morrison (and his boots) blew minds this year with his technical skiing and mountaineering ability in ‘The Ordinary Skier‘. If you still haven’t seen it, here’s your chance! For those in the US you lucked out & can watch for free on Hulu! If you don’t want to deal with ads or you live outside the US, get the combo-pack with ‘Grand Bizarre’ from Poor Boyz HERE.

まだまだシーズン

最近はトランポリンしたり、山登りしたりしてますが、、、。

自分の住んでいる、ここ山形県には月山という山があってまだまだ滑る事が可能です。

まだまだ雪たっぷり。

冬とはまた違う感じの夏スキーを楽しんでます。

コブだらけの斜面もあって、モーグルやってた自分はついつい攻め攻めで滑ってしまいます。

春雪でシャバシャバだし、けっこう筋肉使う~、、、。

日焼けで顔も痛いし~。

そんなのも夏スキーの楽しみかな。

X-Ray Shows Natural Flex

 

Thanks to SOLE Bootlab (http://www.facebook.com/SOLEbootlab) and Product Development in Chamonix France, we were able to X-Ray our boot’s flex. Enjoy seeing the Natural Flex from the inside out.

No shin bang, Infinite flex and Even pressure. With the ribbed tongue providing a natural linear flex, our cables work like shoelaces, with no dead spots, creating a flex that never bottoms out due to its free hinging rear cuff. FIND YOUR BOOT!

 

Henrik & Kaya: Skiers of the Year

Totaling 50,000 votes between the two, FT’s own Henrik Harlaut (EDollo) and Kaya Turski both won Freeskier‘s Skier of the Year Contest for 2011. Both recently added to the Full Tilt Team, Henrik and Kaya have just been on point this winter. For Henrik it’s not necessarily about landing a podium, but more about his unmatched style and fluid skiing ability. Add that with his huge following (who happen to have computers) and bam, we got a winner!

Check out Henrik’s interview with Freeskier!

Kaya has also been killin it this year, dominating the freeskiing tour winning Winter X Games in Aspen & Tignes, Dew Tour Overall Winner and US Grand Prix. To say she’s in the zone is an understatement.

Jibbing the Last Frontier

Adding to the traditional AK heli-skiing madness, Cam Riley and Clayton Vila have brought urban riding to the mix. Here’s a sneak peak of their adventures and pitfalls filming for Teton Gravity Research. Stay tuned for “The Dream Factory” dropping this September!

FTとの始まり

自分がFT Bootsと契約して、はじめて使用したブーツがこちら↓

FT Camo使用~。

懐かしいです。

このブーツを使用して、SW900とかSW1080とか練習してたなぁ。

5、6年前ですね。

この年は日本Openもあって、このブーツを使用して出場してました。

パイプのコンテストにも挑戦した年で、日本OPENでは予選からスーパーファイナルまで残って10位という結果。

自分としてはとても内容の濃いシーズンだった事を思いだします。

これからも宜しく頼むぜ、FT Boots!!

Old Boot Life of Party

Not only was Charles-Eric Dolce’s old ski boot given new life and purpose by making it the life of the party, it made its way to the upper echelons of ski society… Andy Parry.

With freeskiing going to the Olympics, it seems like part of the sport is starting to take itself a little bit too seriously and forgetting about the fun part of the freeski lifestyle. So, one hungover morning while on the ski lift, I started to wonder what my ski/party crew and I could build to represent our sport and bring that vibe back as much as possible. We decided to build a beer bong in a ski boot. To build this magnificent piece of art, we had to sacrifice an old pair of ski boots, invest gigantic amounts of money in a hardware store and spend countless hours building it. In the end, when we saw the result, we knew we had something very special in our hands.

I’m asking you guys at Full Tilt for a pair of boots because I feel that your company is all about that vibe, providing high performance equipment while not taking yourself too seriously. The picture shows the boot after 8 months straight of partying, Full Tilt’s very own Andy Parry at the IF3 while claiming his prize for the Line Traveling Circus and myself drinking from it.

Remember if you think you deserve boots more than Charles (winner above), then show us why and submit your own entry at Teton Gravity. Check out all of our RECENT WINNERS!

Following becoming a Finalist in the Level 1 Superunknown contest a few years back, Tim has been shredding Park City, and dropping dope edits from time to time. Here he’s featured in a Park City video, killing it with the likes of Tom Wallisch. Nice future spins team Full Tilt!
