Ken Block was joined by Ski-Doo backcountry experts Carl Kuster and Ashley Chaffin as well as a crew of top snowboarders including Olympic slopestyle gold medalist Sage Kotsenburg on a backcountry trip on Utah’s Powder Mountain last February and it comes as no big surprise Ken Block (co-founder of DC Shoes and current rally car driver with a net worth exceding $200 million) is a ripping sledder.
I think you can just mention to Ken he has the opportunity to rip a fast toy and the footage will look sweet and he’s on the next flight. While some of us might retire to life of relaxation and luxury, Mr. Block hasn’t given up his roots in the action sports arena after parting ways with DC and continues to pin every machine he gets on. Dude is a maniac.
If you’re not familiar with Ken’s post DC head honcho career as a rally/stunt driver check out this edit of him charging the streets of SF:
Here’s some snaps from Ken’s instagram of the Utah adventure:
#SkiDooSledShred launches TOMORROW – this is what happens when I invite two pro snowboarders (@SageKotsenburg and @BodeMerrill) and two pro sled riders (@CarlKusterMtnPark and @Ashley_Chaffin) to come shred in one of Utah’s hidden gem powder spots. So much fun filming this video! Check out this all-@GoPro POV teaser clip. #winteriscoming #cantwaittoshredsledsagain #SkiDoo @SkiDooOfficial
Much more of this launching in #SkiDooSledShred tomorrow! Throwback to spectating this backcountry jump by Olympic gold medalist snowboarder @SageKotsenburg, with @carlkustermtnpark sled shredding underneath. All whilst @Ashley_Chaffin and I spectated out in the @PowderMountain backcountry. #SkiDoo #powderhounds
