About Leanne’s Setup

Leanne Pelosi has done a tremendous amount for female snowboarding. She founded the MGT Snowboard Camp for Girls and Women who want to continue to progress their snowboarding and she has appeared in many runway films such as La La Land, As If, and Ro Sham Bo. She is one down to earth rider, and her set up is just as rad as she is.

For the park, where Leanne has no problem throwing 720s and cab 270 on to 180 out on down rails, she checks in her K2 Va Va Voom 143. When in the backcountry she rides her K2 Wolfpack 154. “I developed this board for an all-around board that I use for park and backcountry. You can’t go wrong with feathers on the base.” remarks Leanne.

For bindings she kicks it in the K2 Agogos because of how fast she can get in and out of them and the K2 Contour boots because the Double Boa is easy and fast to use when your on hill.

In remembrance of Aaron Robinson and the amazing person he was

The thoughts of K2 go out the the family and fellow friends of Aaron Robinson. News of his tragic passing has made us all reflect on his life and infectious smile. Over the last few days it has been incredible to hear all the good words people are saying and posting despite the difficulty it is to find those words. As all of us at K2 process the news and our feelings we have collected some words, drawings, and best of times photos that we are sharing as part of the remembrance of a person we all loved so much.

“Yesterday a gem in the snowboard world passed on. Aaron Robinson (A Rob) has suddenly left us…..doing what he loved; snowboarding with friends in Chile. When a life is cut abruptly short there are no words, just feelings and memories. I feel blessed to have gotten to know A Rob at a K2 photo shoot last August in Chile, and I smile when I think of his contagious passion and pure spirit….not to mention he ripped! A Rob you will be missed but never forgotten because you’ve left a contagious way of living life that will be celebrated and shared by everyone you touched along the way. My condolences to the Robinson family and all of his friends.” – Gretchen Bleiler

RespectYourElders in Tahoe

This summer some bros and I hit the studio in Portland to lay down some tunes for the “Respect Your Elders” soundtrack. There are a couple of premiers for the movie going on in Tahoe next week and for the Truckee premier the same bros and I are gonna play those same tunes live on stage. So if you are gonna be in South Lake Tahoe the night of the 27th or Truckee the night of the 28th, come out and have a blast. The movie is gonna be awesome and the music…. is gonna be questionable. Party on!

Tour De Tahoe

If you enjoy bike riding and happen to find yourself in the greater Lake Tahoe area then you are in luck. There are a million and one bike rides to do but there is one particular ride that out beauties them all. That my friends is the Tour De Tahoe. A 72mile ride around the perimeter of Lake Tahoe. You can start from any part of the lake and you can go in any direction. I recommend going clockwise, that way you are riding right on the edge of the big blue beauty. Here’s a map of the ride, I did it yesterday and it was such a blast! Party on!

Chile Pt.2

Just was reminiscing on the beautiful mountains and dogs of Chile. So here’s a few photos for all you mountain and dog lovers out there. Hopefully these make you want to climb the next mountain you see and pet the next dog you come across. Party on and enjoy!

Comida de Chile

I just got back from the K2 Chile trip and holy cow I’ve got a lot of photos. I’ve sorted through them and organized them into three categories. The first blog installment is all about food. The food in Chile is mostly simple dishes. Not very much spice or a ton of flavor but it’s always fresh. There main industry is produce so the fruit and vegetables are plentiful and I finally get to eat palta (avocado) at pretty much every meal which is always a dream of mine. Also if you like yourself some meat, the beef in South America is top notch and a staple of their cuisine. I found the most common dishes you will find are meat and potato style plates, sandwiches filled with meat and guacamole, delicious breads, as well as classics form all over the world (Pizza, Crepes, Hot Dogs, etc.) All in all the food is tasty, it’s definitely not exotic by any means, but it’s delicious and nutritious! Here’s some food photo’s…enjoy!
