Magne-Traction® The Movie
Lib Tech Ski presents "Magne-Traction® The Movie" Is it a mini full length movie or a long edit? We don't know. But we do know it rips, because our team rips. Lucas Wachs, Mike King, Blaine Gallivan, Dominik Wilfling, Christoph Kaar, Simon Grissemann, Jon Marks and Adam Ü are all in here throwing down from Baldface to Baker to Bachelor...that's all the Bs. We also got a chance to ski at Stellar Heli, amazing place, Lucas and Mike went off there, most of this movie is at Stellar, like all the insane pillows and huge chutes and stuff. And there's some summer Timberline action, gotta hit Hood and our Euro squad at Absolute park and Blaine in Jackson Hole (insane shots) and actually some Japan clips...damn we got out there for this! Sean Lucey filmed almost all of it with some key clips coming from around the globe and he edited it as well. Nice work Luce! A few vegetables WERE harmed in the making of this film. The music is by a great band from Seattle called Kinski. The songs in here are "New India" and "Newport". They have a bunch of great albums, you should dig in. Speaking of digging in our skis have Magne-Traction® serrated steak knife technology. Don't want to bore you with the details here but suffice it to say it carves super good and gives you more confidence and makes a wide ski feel narrower on hard pack and we are the only ski brand doing it...we invented it. More on "Mag" and "made in the USA" and "Zero Hazardous Waste" and "all that" later. For now just enjoy some skiers skiing in beautiful terrain, on beautiful skis (couldn't help it)! And thank you for watching our video, hope it inspires you to get out there a bunch this winter. Remember, keep your tips up and kooks have more fun!

Oregon Backcountry feat. Lucas Wachs
Some people wait for snow, some people go up high and find it. For a December in Oregon, it had been abnormally dry in terms of snowfall. Everything was skiing as if it were Spring conditions. Lucas Wachs and I decided to go on an overnighter and explore some parts of a zone that we hadn't skied before. What we found was a natural terrain park littered throughout the mountain. Nature had created perfect jumps with no building required! Just strap on the skis and send! Music: Id - Phased and Drumfused soundcloud.com/idproject

Northwest Dream with Lib Tech Ski
Lib Tech Ski is proud to release this short and powerful freestyle blast "Northwest Dream" featuring Lucas Wachs and Mike King with Adam Ü and Jon Marks. Lib Tech's founding fathers, Mike and Pete, grew up in the Northwest skiing, surfing and skateboarding and idolizing skiers and ski manufacturers in the region. They purposefully set up shop here in Seattle under the shadow of the Cascade Mountains as well as the umbrella of a burgeoning aerospace industry and legendary ski manufactures. Their love for mountains, skiing and materials lead to Lib Tech Snowboards and then full circle back to the launch of Lib Tech Ski. It's a northwest dream realized. Now with Lib Tech Ski we have the pleasure of working with new young dreamers who live and breath ski from the factory floor to a crew of die hard Rippers, legends and up and comers all the way to Bend, Oregon's Lucas Wachs who is in the international vanguard of progressive backcountry skiing. This is their Northwest Dream and it's a lot like Mike and Pete's; chasing powder, pillows, lines and tricks up and down Cascadia with good friends and a common goal; live the dream. Filmed by Sean Lucey at Mt. Bachelor, Alpental, Summit at Snoqualmie and British Columbia all on Mervin Made zero hazardous waste Lib Tech skis with Magne-Traction.
