Shredding from Ben and Ryan. The soundtrack is from them too!
Snowboarding; although young, is reaching a point where traditions and legends are becoming more and more established. Nowhere does this seem more prevalent than at Mt. Baker and the most resent Mt Baker Banked Slalom was no different. Please read on as K2 rider Marcel Dolak explains his contribution to snowboarding’s traditions. This one will send shivers down your spine, I promise.

The guys at nwBroweather are holding another pow slash contest and we threw in some gear for the winnings.
Send in your best pow-slash photo to firstname.lastname@example.org for chance at winning!
Here’s how to win:
Go do the one universal trick that all snowboarders can do–slash pow. Have your bro/girlfriend snap a photo of it and send ‘er in. After we’ve received enough photo submissions we’ll get a gallery going. Photos will be judged by a select group of heavily intoxicated veteran pow slashers after which a winner will be decided.
What makes a winning pow slash photo? Ef if we know. That’s where you come in.
- photo must be a pow slash.
- photo must be from this year.
- photo must be from the Northwest US. No shit from Chile.
- include rider name, photo name, location optional.
- contest will run for next few storm cycles or so.
A quick edit from Kyle Miller snowboarding from earlier today at Alpine Meadows. Kyle says “A good morning of pow at Alpine Meadows, good start to the big storm ahead.”

We are sponsoring a vertical challenge and up for grabs is a new 2012-13 K2 Fastplant for the men and a new Eco Lite for the women.
To participate you must download and use the Alpine Replay app for Android and iPhone to track your vert at any mountain in North America. Vertical feet will be accumulated over the next two weekends, March 17-18 and March 24-25.
The top 30 contenders will be entered to win a new board for both men and women. Those who log at least 1,000′ will be entered to win K2 accessories at random.
Fun times in the backcountry with friends. That’s what the K2 Panoramic splitboard is for!
