2011.12 Catalog Shoot in Chile. Day one. Ole! Ole! Ole!

Ole Ole Ole! It’s that time of the year….catalog shoot time. So while many of you are probably trying to squeeze in the last few days of float life, BBQ’s, beaches, bikini’s, warm weather surf and all those other wonderful things about summer. We decided to end it early and take some of the team down to Chile to shoot the 2011.12 Catalog, and what can we say? Such a good decision!

The Mike Yoshida

First met up with K2 Staff Photographer and video cameo master Mike Yoshida. Between the two of us we had around 14 bags including our photo gear. Packed everything into my girfriend’s Subaru. Not enough room for me and Mike so we had to get a cab as well. Good times. Then we had an interesting challenge of trying to get 10 bags of product onto a jumper flight to LAX. Thanks to the counter ladies at United for the straight hook up! We met the majority of the rest of the crew in Los Angeles which consisted of Jordan Mendenhall, Travis Parker, Gretchen Bleiler, Leanne Pelosi, and one of our filmers for the trip Sam Hiltner. 13 hours, a quick stop in Lima, some delicious wine, and a couple Advil PM’s and we were in Santiago.

Customs in Chile is pretty mellow. Brought in over 30 snowboards. Helps if you pretend not to know what they are asking you.

The drive up from Santiago to the Farallones area is a fun one. Over 39 counted switch backs on a road not much wider than your car in some areas climbing around 4,000 feet. We arrived at our house for the trip right next to El Colorado Resort, one of the first houses to built up here. Farallones is next to four resorts El Colorado, Valle Nevado, La Parva, and Farallones. Every window has a view of the Andes. Not bad.

Winter time, south of the border……

So, if you’ve been following the blogs, you know that the K2 snowboarding team is down here in Argentina.  We’ve been lucky enough to be hosted by the SASS (South American Snow Session) camp, and it has been the trip of a lifetime!  Joining us, just two days ago was Leanne Pelosi, along with Shaun Mckay, Eero, Robbie J, Gretchen Bleiler, myslef, Winkel, and the Joel, we have set out to find powder, eat massive amounts of steak, and stack a large amount of lifeys, and product shots.  We’ve been shooting on the new products for 2010-2011, and I have to say that the next years graphics are poppin’, and off the chain this year!  Here’s a couple shots from my travels…..I can’t release any a grade bangers, but these phots will have to do for now!
