If you've ever been up to Mt. Baker to ride, you'd understand how serious of a proving ground this ancient volcano is for freeriders. Originally developed with this legendary peak as its home, the K2 Joy Driver Wide Snowboard is a hard-charging deck for riding serious alpine terrain and dropping burly cliffs into deep powder. This particular Joy Driver is wider than usual, giving big-footed riders plenty of stability for making hard carves and stomping landings. Also, it floats better than the standard deck, as the extra width provides increased buoyancy in deep powder. The Joy Driver is built on a Shifted Camber profile, which is most prominent along the rear inserts for driving powerful turns from the back foot. This camber dominance maintains razor-sharp response, enhanced by the board's stiff flex pattern for holding an edge when falling simply isn't an option. Seeing the Joy Driver is a purebred freeride board, it's no surprise it's build on a directional shape for enhanced float and straight-line stability. And to add a bit more float to the board's riding disposition, K2's Tweekend continuous rocker keeps the nose floating above powder without the tendency to dive underneath like a pure camber board. Looking under the hood of this freeride board, K2's Bambooyah core delivers powerful snap and response, as well as beefing it up from harsh landings. In fact, K2's backs up its most durable core with an excellent five year warranty, which is one of the best in the industry when it comes to snowboards. Another power-enhancing feature, the triax fiberglass maintains a stiffer torsional flex that's intended for aggressive riders laying into high-speed carves.

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.
