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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
Late spring park days are filled with fun ski trains. Legs of Steel took this to a whole new level,with a slew of pro skiers, including Laurent Farve, and 3 large jumps. Zero spins and double flips replaced daffys and spread eagles. The madness ensues below.
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.
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!
