  1. love for K2 as a local goes way back to wrapping skis on Vashon to skiing product that really worked and inspired you to do new things on the mountain with your skiing. The Mindbender series imo is quite possibly a generational gift to skiers with the quality of build and dimensions nailed to accommodate the varying things we want to do on the mountain that day.

  2. So the Women’s models was where the I beam stuff came from? I guess we could say that they made the men’s ski’s by the philosophy : “grew it and blue it”. ;-)

  3. Trying to decide between the K2 mind bender 90 ti or the Blizzard Rustler 9 – would appreciate any input on the two skis. The will be my all mountain ski, I spend my time 60% front and 40% off piste.
