Greetings From Argentina

Hello all you of you K2 Blog readers out there . We (the K2 team, well some of us) just spent our first day on the hill in Argentina. We got some powder but it was not very much. We are hoping it snows some more so we can get after it.

Snowboarders in Argentina ride gear that is from the 90′s. Its pretty awesome. Also the lift lines are really long, and LAN airline logos are everywhere.

This is just one of the lines to get a lift ticket. Check out some of the sweet styles

The conditions were not the best, but at least we got to see a bunch of collisions. This was the after math from a particularly entertaining crash.

Ok thats it for now. Check back for more updates from Argentina. Hopefully we will have some better, more engaging content in the near future.

K2 Snowboarding Visits ARGENTINA and South America Snow Sessions

Okay that’s it, we are over summer! It’s time for winter. Heading down to South America, specifically Bariloche, Argentina and

to shoot our 2010/2011 catalog. Meeting up with Gretchen, Eero, and Mckay in LA and then off to Bariloche to meet up with Yoshida and Brinson who have been busy scouting out spots for us while we are there. And did someone say the Shark is coming as well? Uh oh. Oh and maybe a sighting with Miss Leanne Pelosi as well. Dang this is going to be fun.

Stay tuned for tons of new posts, blogs, news, tweets, for all the goodness!

Pray for snow!

Some hot Mt. Hood slush shovelin’ and salting to pretend BMX on snowboards.

Thank Goodness For Fridays…and these guys.

Guitar stuff

If you de-tune your E-string down to D and keep the rest of the strings in place it sounds pretty damn badass. I’m gonna play some blues the rest of the day on my beaten up ’70s amp and les paul copy while practising a Slash power stance.

Snowboarding is fun even and well especially in the summer time. Especially at High Cascade Snowboard Camp…and especially at Mt Hood….and especially with the K2 team…and especially when it’s really hot…and especially when you are LIVIN FAST!!!

It’s session 5 here at High Cascade Snowboard Camp and it’s a very special session. Special because it’s the Photo/Video workshop camp as well. So yesterday after boarding the media and some boarders stayed on the mountain for a sunset shoot. There was a BBQ, awesome snow features, and one heck of a sunset! Here’s a few photos from the evening…

Digger Track with Kirk Kaufman

As August is just around the corner and the Oregonian heat wave is hitting, 110 in Portland translates to about 80 to 90 degrees on hill, a good breeze can save your day, but there is no denying the heats effects on the snow. At times like these you could complain about the heat, or make the best of it, toss some snow under your hat to cool off and make a BMX Style Rhythm section as we did today.Kirk Kaufman's track, made possible by him, me, Josh Poehlein and Clayton Kinney
