SASS is Summer Snowboarding

For all you back country rippers out there take a look at this video From SASS down in Argentina. I can’t imagine a better place to spend my summer than shredding around in dope powder chutes and building killer back country jumps.

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!
