We’re hitting the road this season and coming to a mountain near you. In typical K2 fashion we’re putting a spin on things and having some #SeriousFun. It’s safe to say this isn’t your normal “demo”. Come see for yourself. Read More >
The snow is flying, it’s starting to accumulate, and you’re ready to get into the backcountry. Don’t forget to take your backcountry knowledge and education with you. One of our friends, Sarah Carpenter, works with the American Avalanche Institute, recently we tapped her on the shoulder and asked for a few pointers about skiing in the backcountry. Check out her “Beginners Guide to the Backcountry” tips below. Get educated, stay smart and have fun.
Words by Sarah Carpenter:
Backcountry skiing is an adventure. You can explore new places, find good snow, and escape the crowds. But in order to go backcountry skiing successfully, you have to be prepared. There is gear, knowledge and a mindset that you have to obtain before you leave the safety net of the ski area.
Mountain steeps to the streets of Boston, the K2 Factory Team spent last winter all over the globe, sliding on snow and having some #SeriousFun. The result, Furious Sun. Join the team as they throw it back at Mt. Hood, destroy urban features on the east coast, and chase the snow in Colorado, Utah, and more.
The full movie drops soon. Keep your eyes peeled and until then, party on.
Everyone loves free stuff. K2 Free Boot Friday is back and we’re stoked to be spreading the love throughout the fall. What’s Free Boot Friday you may ask? Every other Friday in September and October we’ll be giving away free boots to the most creative posts.
