The second half of my trip to Chile with the K2 Snowboarding crew continued with some more snowboarding, photo shoots, a taste of the Chilean culture, and of course more Pisco. A few new members of the team showed up to shoot for the K2 catalog including Matt Belzile, Leanne Pelosi, Travis Parker, Tim Eddy, and Mason Aguirre. It was awesome to be able to stand to the side and shoot some photos of a few of the riders sessioning a rock jump at sunset. It is always a reality check when you see how much work goes into getting one shot or a four second video clip.
After another night of amazing food and too many drinks containing the Chilean alcohol of choice, Pisco, we headed down to the city of Santiago before everyone had to hop on a plane and head back to the states. We ate some crazy food and did what any typical tourist would do, walk around the city, cameras in hand, staring at everything wide-eyed. My advice to you is to get off your couch, jump on a plane, and see all the crazy stuff there is to see out there... you can even do a little snowboarding along the way.
Huge thanks to K2 crew (Hunter Waldron, Meghan Grabow, and John OConner) for bringing me along on the trip and our awesome guides at La Parva, Rodrigo and Mike.

Everyone dreams of having their own private terrain park in their backyard. Well in 2003 Ken Block bought some property in Utah to do just that, opening the full blown park known as the DC MTN Lab in 2005. This 22 acre winter wonderland was a sanctuary for the DC team, creating many memorable moments in snowboarding history. As of this year, the property is currently up for sale.... leaving us wondering if DC will create another shredder's paradise in a different location. Until then we will salute the MTN Lab with their full movie from 2005 featuring the likes of Eddie Wall, Todd Richards, Simon Chamberlain, Travis Rice, Devun Walsh, Travis Parker, Bjorn Leines, Priscilla Levac, and more.Read More
