K2 Darkside Climbing Skins (181cm) 2010: So a loonnnngg time ago (and I’m talkin’ way before our lifetime) men in Asia used to traverse a woven fiber line hand over hand in order to cross between large valleys in the mountains. (I’m not making this up so read on…) Anyway, their children’s children became a little smarter and added some sort of harness or basket to transport things they couldn’t hold in their pockets. Before ya know it it’s 1936 and Sun Valley Resort has installed the first known chairlift, sorta like the ones we all know and love today. Now chairlifts are filled with green-loving (interpret ‘green’ however you choose) teens and twenty-somethings who find it amusing to throw snowballs at children and heckle those near them. For all of you who just can’t stand the hecklers, K2 has made the Darkside Climbing Skins for you. Take the peaceful way up the hill, enjoy the scenery, take pictures of birds, and shred some gnarly pow.
