Gretchen Bleiler Press Release: 2011/2012
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (December 15, 2011) – K2 Snowboarding and Gretchen Bleiler are proud to announce that they have extended their partnership through 2014. Bleiler, an X Games champion and Olympic medalist, has been an integral part of the K2 International Pro Team for more than eight years helping to progress women’s snowboarding through not only her on-snow accomplishments but through her involvement in the K2 Alliance and the development of products like her K2 EcoPop snowboard, Contour boots, and Agogo bindings.
“It feels really good to have just re-signed with K2 for another three
years,” said Gretchen Bleiler. “K2 has become my Northwest family and throughout the years we’ve accomplished a lot together from Olympic and X Games medals to magazine covers, cool new cutting edge technologies and super fun graphics. I always feel so grateful for K2’s support and am really looking forward to the next three years, I have a feeling they’re going to be epic!”
“I can’t express my excitement enough to be working with Gretchen for another three years,” said Peter Mullenbach, K2 Snowboarding International Team Manager. “Aside from being an amazing snowboarder, Gretchen is a great person who has helped shape all aspects of women’s snowboarding while sustaining a proper style and personality for women and girls around the world to admire. She is passionate, competitive and dedicated; we are truly looking forward to the next three years with one of snowboarding’s great gems.”
Fresh off the training grounds of New Zealand, Gretchen is busy preparing for a full season of competition including the US Grand Prix, Dew Tour and X Games among others. Additionally, K2 engineers will continue seeking product feedback from Gretchen with the idea of creating the most advanced and effective women’s snowboard products on the market. Keep your eyes on Gretchen, she’s just getting started.
