K2 Snowboarding Presents “Our Backyard” Teaser

Snowboarding is passion, snowboarding is inspiring and creative; it’s high fives and powder mustaches. Many of the best days to be had are in white out conditions, in the heart of the storm, yet fully comforted by the solitude of the trees. This is snowboarding in the Pacific Northwest, in our own backyard. 

The true beauty of snowboarding, though, is that every person has they’re unique outlook and whether your backyard is Mt. Baker or a golf course in West Virginia we encourage you to explore that territory and reacquaint yourself with the comfort that snowboarding brings. The friendships that it strengthens and the excitement it instills.

Follow along as we portray our season every other Tuesday from now until the start of January. This is “Our Backyard,” where’s yours?

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.
