Who is Jason Levinthal and JSkis?

HI, I’M J

Hi! My name is Jason Levinthal, and I’m the skier that built the first twin-tip skis in my parent’s garage to start the ski company “LINE” back in 1995. For over 25 years I’ve been pioneering game-changing, award-winning skis on a relentless mission to make skiing way more fun. I’ve launched, grown, acquired and sold multiple ski brands working with my friends that happen to be some of the smartest, most badass engineers, athletes, artists and forward thinking minds in the industry. I even won a medal in the first X Games! These are by far my best skis yet, hope you enjoy!

From one skier to another, hit me up anytime! @jasonlevinthal jason@Jskis.com

THIS IS MY CREW

Bunch of gapers making shit happen here at the speed of thought

“FANK” MARK FANKHAUSER

Fank is an art nerd and industry legend who’s spent decades scheming hilarious ideas into mind blowing graphics. He works in a secret underground lair in West Seattle, only coming out for coffee and to shred Stevens side-country with his homies. @fank209

TAYLOR BIBAUD

Dale Phillips was our first employee, and somehow is still here! He makes all the marketing that makes you love us. Grew up night skiing Wachusett MA, now a real Vermonter, mtn biking, shooting guns and listening to country music. Pass this man a Bud Light! @uvmcatamounts

LYNDSEY RYAN

If your product doesn’t arrive on time, blame her! This superhero wrangles factories and shippers to get’r made and into your hands. She’s a lifetime upstate New Yorker that enjoys ice skiing at Greek Peak and hanging with Kairi, her Shiba Inu. Go Dodge coin! @lyndsey_marie

CONNOR SAUNDERS

If you own J skis you’ve likely talked to Connor and know he provides customer service that’s second to none. He’s an Ice Coast park skier for life at Sugarbush, and always enjoys a solid après session... during work. @csteazy

NOAH SPAETH

When taking a break from his lucrative bitcoin day trading he helps you choose the right skis through his stellar Customer Service. This Connecticut flat-lander turned Vermont powder hound also enjoys reading books, and fine-tuning his mustache! @noahspaeth

COURT LONG

She’s the voice behind the J on social media saying what’s up and sharing your badass pics and vids. Court migrated from the corn fields of Kansas to the base of Winter Park to get first chair and steal your pow daily! @courtlong10

"J LEV" JASON LEVINTHAL

Our fearless leader follows the only plan he’s ever known… trial, error, and bullshit until it works! A formula he’s refined for decades to succeed doing everything the opposite of everyone else. Living in VT, J dreams of someday skiing as much as his customers. @jasonlevinthal

ANDREW DAHL

When you reach out to Customer Service he uses his education in economics and data analytics coupled with years ski bumming Steamboat to determine the best ski for you! Living in Wellesley MA, he rallies north on the weekends to get the goods. @adahlfin

GIRAY DADALI

Also known as Ahmet’s Brother, he’s our pro athlete, inventor, engineer, entrepreneur, film maker, and comedian. Giray grew up in NY with the Line Traveling Circus, and escaped to Utah to get the goods and never went back. @ahmetsbrother

OLLIE

The bossman! AKA our fat, furry, fun, feline friend and mascot inspiration. After his daily 23 hour nap you can count on him to get shit done, literally... after chowing a few cans of Fancy Feast. We were blessed with his presence (15 year nap). RIP Big Man!

FRANCOIS SYLVAIN

Uncle Canada is a jedi master engineer that’s spent decades building ski factories, and turning numbers into the best skis on earth, light years ahead of their time. He grew up a legendary Quebec racer, now exclusively chasing powdah in Fernie, BC. @uncle_canada

JF BOUCHARD

He’s the mastermind that owns and operates Utopie, the most advanced ski factory in North America brewing wood and fiberglass into our award winning skis, located in the coldest corner of the continent, Rimouski QC, Canada.
