Honestly, if everyone followed your strategy of skipping lines and charging down the terrain park without stopping, then there wouldn't be any lines in the first place. Unfortunately the ski resort authorities disagreed, and now you're confined to dark alleways in search of unbolted rails to pass wintertime. Fortunately, the K2 Poacher Ski pops and plays in the park at the start of the season while simultaneously surviving the rigors of reckless street rails at the end of the season. It sports a skinny 96mm waist width and K2's All-Terrain Rocker to stay rock solid and prevent hooking when you're really getting after it. K2 built the Poacher with an innovative Double Barrel wood core made of high-density, durable fir at the edges and lighter, livelier aspen in the center. Two laminates of fiberglass and carbon with a unique braiding process add torsional rigidity and strength without interfering with the ski's lively flex. The TwinTech Sidewalls provide the durability needed for rail impacts, ski-on-ski abrasion, and the occasional wipeout.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
