Mt.Niceness~West-topia Tour….K2 Skis World Headquarters-Seattle,WA


Since I was in Seattle I had to visit my ski sponsor K2 at their World Headquarters.  The place was buzzing with stoke for the upcoming season.  It was great being around  people who love skiing with as much passion as I do.  It really shows in all the amazing new gear that is coming out!   I received the sweet tour from Ski Designer Ken Schiele and got see to see how the best skis in the world are made.

Hood Canal is a fjord forming the western lobe, and one of the four main basins, of Puget Sound in the state of Washington. Hood Canal is not a canal in the sense of being a man-made waterway—it is a natural waterway.
