K2 Snowboarding – “Our Backyard” Teaser

Snowboarding is passion, snowboarding is inspiring and creative; it’s high fives and powder mustaches. Many of the best days to be had are in white out conditions, in the heart of the storm, yet fully comforted by the solitude of the trees. This is snowboarding in the Pacific Northwest, in our own backyard.

The true beauty of snowboarding, though, is that every person has they’re unique outlook and whether your backyard is Mt. Baker or a golf course in West Virginia we encourage you to explore that territory and reacquaint yourself with the comfort that snowboarding brings. The friendships that it strengthens and the excitement it instills.

Follow along as we portray our season every other Tuesday from now until the start of January. This is "Our Backyard," where’s yours?

Dispatches: Laura Austin 1.0 – K2 In Chile Part 1

Dispatches: Laura Austin 1.0 – K2 In Chile Part 1

Words & Photos: Laura Austin

How could you say no to a trip to Chile? Well I guess if you hated endless powder, ridiculous scenery, and awesome people then you might turn down this adventure. But I happen to love all these things, so when I was offered to fly down to South America with K2, I couldn't say no.

K2 brought some of their key retailers and 2 "media people" down to Chile to hang out in La Parva for 4 days while doing catalog shoots with the team, and well.... enjoy what La Parva had to offer. It dumped the day before we got there and since the resort is all above treeline that meant that one gift from the snow gods provided four days of endless powder. From the language barrier, to the people, the views, the dance parties, the snowboarding, and of course the Pisco Sours... it was definitely a trip of a lifetime.

Check back soon for the second Dispatch from this trip.
