K2 is proud partner of SAAC

For us riding off-piste was and still is probably the most important reason why we work in this industry. For sure we spend a lot of time in the office, and read more about riding powder than actually doing it ourselves. But once we get out we know why we love what we are doing.

But offering the tools for riding off-piste is only a small part of it. Besides offering a wide range of ATLAS (AllTerrainLiftAccess) Boards – we are also focusing on the education of those who are looking for the ultimate thrill.

We have worldwide cooperations with mountain guides, freeride camps, avalanche education centers and have now also started a new cooperation with one of the leading avalanche education institutions in the German speaking markets:
Since 1998 SAAC has been educating riders about avalanches and dangers in the backcountry with the goal to offer anybody the knowledge and ability to judge and minimize the risk while enjoying the off-piste.

SAAC offers 2 different levels of camps – one 2-day basic camp which is FREE (so be quick signing up as spots are filling up fast…) and a so called SAACnd Step Camp over 3.5 or 5.5 days with a more detailed program s.a. weather and avalanche forecast knowledge, route planning, first aid, etc.

For more information, dates and locations of the 2009-2010 season check their website.
