Strange news stories, interviews with legends and Britain’s best skiers. Here are Fall-Line’s most viewed posts of 2016
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.
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!
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…
Clearly writer Will Robson wasn’t the only skier intrigued by Les Sybelles’ winning mix of cruisey pistes and challenging sidecountry…
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.

2. Fall-Line’s Gear of the Year Awards
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!
