Bring your snorkel to Mt. Baker, you’ll need it.
The Grand Finale of 2012 will culminate with footage from Shaun McKay, Leanne Pelosi and our great friend and brother Aaron Robinson and the Manifest crew. Plain and simple, snowboarding kicks ass and anyone lucky enough to ride is blessed with the opportunity. Enjoy snowboarding my friends because it straight up rules!
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?

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!
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.
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.
But now looking forward to a great week! Not the powder we expected, but can’t beat the sunshine. Stay tuned for updates as much as we can. Internet is a pretty rare commodity up here.
