K2 Snowboards Backpack Giveaway Winner!

30 Oct, 2011

Whether it’s your first time in the backcountry or you just need a pack to carry your gear around; having a snowboard specific backpack makes all the difference.

K2 Snowboards offered up the 11-12 K2 Sentinel backpack for a giveaway, so I asked you guys why you needed it. The comments were a good mix of responses and it was tough to select a winner. I sorted through and selected 30 top comments and then randomly selected a winner from those top people.

The Winner is Mason B.

Mason had it rough last winter and has been needing to replace his stolen backpack in order to make this winter an awesome one! Well congrats to Mason who will for sure get off to a great start this season with this new pack!

Mason’s Winning Comment

“I need this backpack because last winter I was helping out at a youth snowboard event in Kamloops, BC, Canada and someone broke into our van and stole all of our gear. Nearly $7000 worth of boards, boots, bindings, cameras, computers, packs, clothes, and other things. Anyways, my pack was stolen along with the other stuff and I’m still yet to replace it. I’ve been using just a normal backpack and it is terrible to ride with, just bounces around all over the place. I would love to have a good riding back again!”

    Congrats Mason from your fellow Canadian! I hope this pack brings you luck. Theft is very hurtful. Years ago, when I was learning to ride, somebody stole my board on the second day…..
