Featured K2 Ski Shuksans (available at Backcountry.com – click photo below for details)

Developed in conjunction with Swiss Guide and Pro Guiding Service owner Martin Volken as a high-performance ski mountaineering ski, the Shuksan returns as the staple of the AT line. It still incorporates two sheets of metal, a stout flex, and versatile 16.0 sidecut, but we’ve updated the tip for better edge hold and quicker initiation. Light enough for mutli-day tours; its overriding quality is confidence instilling performance when conditions or terrain won’t forgive a mistake.

  2. Tom says:

    Need to make a first post …

    somewhere in the Kaikoura Range?

  3. Stewart says:

    Just setting myself up to win a pair of Mount Baker Superlights

  4. Andrew says:

    Cheeeeeck – you guys are now all preregistered. Good luck.

  5. Adam Shilman says:

    Me too!! Me too!! I wish those skis were a little closer to Alaska though…..

    Awesome site, Andrew!! Thanks for the contest

  6. Andrew says:

    Hi Adam – next time they might be. :) I’ve heard there’s some good skiing up there.

  7. Adam Shilman says:

    Yep, there sure is, I live in Talkeetna, so I have the AK Range and the Talkeetna Mtns at my disposal! :)

  8. Duncan says:

    I am certainly in on this comp, though I fear I maybe skiing when the fifth clue is announced. Damn my local knowledge might be my disadvantage as well.

  9. MPG says:

    Love the site and thanks for the contest.
    Count me in.

  10. Chris says:

    I’m in too – there’s a good chance I’ve been there!! I’m aiming for a pair of Coomba’s…

  11. Eero says:

    Interesting competition. I would like to register, just to see if I’ve actually been there (the magical mystery spot) recently. If the answer is guessed prior to the fifth week correctly do you win?

  12. telexis says:

    Hey, how long before being killed?!? From the question I was expecting it to be, at least, sometime during its 3rd trip… but it doesn’t seem to be the case!

  13. Andrew says:

    Hi Eero – no, you have to wait until the fifth clue is given, but realistically, it would be very hard/impossible to guess the location and by doing so, you might be giving away some valuable clues, which is up to you.

  14. Andrew says:

    Hi Telexis – roughly nine years before he was ambushed from behind and dropped into the surf.

  15. Ian says:

    Just getting myself preregistered. If my figurings right I’ve been playing in these mountains quite a bit the last couple of months, lets hope that helps!

  16. Rob says:

    Pre-register me, please. =)
