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!

Good Bye Argentina

So I have been home for a couple of days but just wanted to drop some photos from the end of the Trip. Argentina and SASS was a great time. We got some Pow Pow and had lots of fun. There are more K2 Dudes currently in Chile and I am sure they are boarding it up, and will be posting some blogs about their adventures soon.

K2 Snowboarding Visits ARGENTINA and South America Snow Sessions

Okay that’s it, we are over summer! It’s time for winter. Heading down to South America, specifically Bariloche, Argentina and

to shoot our 2010/2011 catalog. Meeting up with Gretchen, Eero, and Mckay in LA and then off to Bariloche to meet up with Yoshida and Brinson who have been busy scouting out spots for us while we are there. And did someone say the Shark is coming as well? Uh oh. Oh and maybe a sighting with Miss Leanne Pelosi as well. Dang this is going to be fun.

Stay tuned for tons of new posts, blogs, news, tweets, for all the goodness!

Pray for snow!
