Kamp K2: Powder, PBR, and Rock & Roll

Mt. Baker, WA – In a. week that will undoubtedly go down in Baker lore as one of the greatest sessions ever, Kamp K2 managed to bring together a couple hundred retailers, pros, and media types for a truly amazing three-day private powder party.

Opening with 16 inches of fresh, the fortunate few graced lines at a leisurely pace, ripping lazy laps down runs that are normally rally race scenarios.

And the shredding was only part of the deal, with catering by local favorite Milanos, free massage, hot showers and a maze of RV’s across the White Salmon parking lot. With a true “camp” style approach, K2 heads Danielle Hambelton and Jeff Mechura led wobbly tricycle races, beer pong, and video rock competitions among assembled teams. Jib contests, a mini banked slalom, and avalanche safety courses rounded out the event.

But perhaps the highlight of Kamp K2 was night two, featuring Hells Belles — an all-female AC-DC cover band, and free PBR for all. With the guitarist ripping blistering solos, note for note, equaling, if not excelling, Angus Young himself, “Dirty Deeds” never sounded so sweet.

Thanks much to the K2 crew for the invite and a truly amazing spectacle.

Thunderstruck, indeed…
