Will Wesson and Andy Parry - Head for the Hills (2008)

published Oct 2017 - 6,713 views

Throwback to arguably one of the most progressive urban segments of all time from Head for the Hills by Meathead Films. I decided to upload this since I stumbled upon the hard copy of the movie I had laying around. It showcases, what is in my opinion, the beginning of a new creative era in skiing. This was the year before Traveling Circus started: At the time, people were actually getting techincal on the streets, but not many thought outside the stock handrails, kinkers and switch-ups. Will and Andy really exploded people's minds with the outstanding creativity and open attitude in this segment: Andy doing rollerblade-esque tricks no-one understood at the time and Will being unbeliveably technical with his creative lines. And remember, this was before anyone had ever thought or heard of "newwave" or whatever the kids call it. This didn't go unnoted: Will was rewarded with the Best Jib-award at the Powder awards for the closing line, which included an underslide (the first one ever done I believe). Now, nearly a decade later, their attitude has not changed much at all with Line TC still going on strong and Will still hunting filling to his skiing spot collection. So enjoy this, nowadays even "low-key-ish" part of skiing history.
