(Kashmir, India) - Passionate skier and full-time freelance writer Eric Segalstad has taken life as a ski bum to a new level. Instead of couch surfing in Jackson Hole or Aspen, Segalstad is stationed at Gulmarg, a ski resort boasting Northern India's wildest terrain, less than one mile from the volatile Line of Control between India and Pakistan.

Documenting his experience inline with frequent dispatches on www.thelineofcontrol.com, a custom blog powered by OutYo.com, Segalstad's adventures range from straight up powder hits to political and cultural forays, giving readers insight, travel tips and a chance to win backcountry ski goods from Black Diamond and educational Avalanche Courses from Colorado Mountain School.

“TheLineOfControl.com is an exciting online experience,” states Mike Slone, co-founder of Stellar Transmedia and OutYo.com, the stateside provider of this ski webumentary. “It's a rare opportunity to experience skiing in Kashmir from the ground, with colorful words, video, and photography on a daily basis.”

Segalstad posts weekly updates and photographs, information about his gear and facts about the area. Best of all, Segalstad's sponsors, including Stellar Transmedia, Black Diamond and Colorado Mountain School, are offering weekly giveaways throughout February and March. Enter to win a free avalanche course, a pair of Black Diamond Verdict skis and lots more. Visit www.thelineofcontrol.com to register.
