Mount Everest is partnering with K2 Skis to connect ski enthusiasts and engineers at their Buckle-Up event on Saturday, November 23rd from 10am- 5pm.
Boot engineers from K2 headquarters at Vashon Island will be setting up shop in the Westwood store to talk one on one with skiers about boot tech while finding and fitting K2 boots for each attendee.
The events focuses on K2’s Freeskier’s Editor’s Pick elite Recon 130 boot but since boots fit differently for everyone, attendees will also be able to try on and learn more about the K2 BFC 100, Antham and others.
K2 will also running a raffle to give away a pair of Recon boots to one lucky skier and offering free beer (for those with proper ID) and pizza.
This is an all- day event, so stop in anytime to work with the engineers or just come grab a beer.
See you there, you don’t want to miss out!
STAY WILD with K2 Snowboarding and Airblaster this season with this year’s Happy Hour. The K2 Happy Hour is a 100% FLATLINE twin board that is reshaped with K2’s new “Tweakend” technology. K2 just extended their Baseline Rocker all the way out to the absolute end of the board to create more rideable surface in the tip and tail of the board, giving the rider a more stable platform to press, butter, float, and stomp landings with. Add in K2’s “Ollie” bar and carbon web laminates the Happy Hour gets all the pop and snap needed to stab and grab down the entire mountain. Shop all 2013 K2 Snowboards.
