The Armada Team journeyed out to South Korea this past February to see what the skiing culture in and around Seoul was all about. They spent most of their time at High 1 Resort, exploring the mountain and all of the concrete and rock ledges surrounding the hotel area. Most of the people who lived in this region had never witnessed this kind of skiing before.

The award winning crew at Level 1 has been producing the world’s most progressive freestyle ski films consistently for more than a decade. Over that time Level 1’s athletes have developed a deep allegiance to Full Tilt ski boots for their unique lightweight and natural flex characteristics thus are able to perform more technical tricks with a higher level of ease & comfort. This advantage helps them push their sport every year and bring the high level of ski entertainment the world has come to expect from Level 1.
It’s this natural partnership between Level 1’s athletes and Full Tilt Boot’s performance that drove Josh Berman, founder of Level 1 and Josh Malczyk, Full Tilt’s team manager to materialize the concept of a limited edition collaboration team ski boot. The boot’s unique sneaker-like look, high contrast black and white aesthetics and details that include athlete’s signatures were created together by both brand’s artists and athletes.
Full Tilt will be producing only 500 pair of this limited edition Level 1 & Full Tilt team pro model for distribution globally. The “Level 1” Boot hits stores November 1, 2012. Contact your favorite Full Tilt dealer to snag yourself a pair today … before they’re gone!
