Strange news stories, interviews with legends and Britain’s best skiers. Here are Fall-Line’s most viewed posts of 2016

10. SCOTLAND’S BEST BACKCOUNTRY SKI SPOTS

This was originally posted in March 2015. But clearly you lot can’t get enough of Scotland’s moisture-laden, wind-swept backcountry. And to be fair, as our very own Martin Chester says, when conditions are right, our home hills really can be unbeatable.

9. GLEN PLAKE: THE BIGGEST MOMENTS IN MY LIFE SO FAR

In which ski hero Glen Plake gets very, very candid about the biggest moments in his life, from escaping to Chamonix to getting married. What a legend!

8. A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO TELEMARKING

Freeride-Spot Kitzsteinhorn

Considering the amount of readers who have pored over this feature on telemarking, we’re expecting to see a lot more free-heeled knee-bending skiers on the mountains this season…

7. THE LOW-PROFILE FRENCH RESORT WITH SERIOUSLY BIG TERRAIN

Clearly writer Will Robson wasn’t the only skier intrigued by Les Sybelles’ winning mix of cruisey pistes and challenging sidecountry

6. FIVE OF THE MOST LUXURIOUS MOUNTAIN HUTS IN THE ALPS

This article pretty much sums the Fall-Line team up. We love touring, but we are suckers for a bit of luxury. And at these five mountain huts you find the perfect compromise; Jacuzzis, pastry chefs and private en suites aplenty.

5. HOW TO SKI CORBET’S COULOIR

Doug Coombs, Corbet's Couloir, Jackson Hole, WY

An oldie but a goldie, every time we post this feature it goes viral. There’s something about Jackson Hole’s iconic couloir that captures the imagination of the internet. It’s probably that 25 foot drop in...

4. THE CANADIAN HOUSE WITH ITS OWN PRIVATE SKI AREA

Since when did we become a Estate Agent? To be fair, this Canadian house does come with five private ski slopes and was on the market for less than a three-bed terrace in Islington. A shame that it has since been sold.

3. THE PORTES DU SOLEIL’S SECRET SKI HILL

Grande Terche is a small ski hill up the road from Morzine with epic lines and quiet slopes. It’s also our most-read travel story of 2016. Perhaps the slopes will be a bit busier this winter as a result. If so, we’re truly, truly sorry.

We’re head over heels obsessed with gear here at Fall-Line, so we’re more than a little stoked that our gear of the year awards were some of the most read posts this year.

Look no further than our newly-launched Skier of the Year awards to see that the British Ski Scene is absolutely thriving. Both the original poll and the results clocked in the highest number of visitors on our entire site in 2016. It’s safe to say it’ll be back next year.

Thanks to everyone who has visited our site, social media or read the magazine this year!
