Sam Kuch is an animal. Since he blew up, seemingly from nowhere, he's been consistently stomping some of the most insane backcountry stunts around for the past few years now. Even last season, and injury season, he still has some bonkers footage in MSP's new movie (which, by-the-by, actually has some insane skiing in it if you circumnavigate the cheese).

Today see's the announcement that he has joined K2 Skis from long-time sponsor Head. With Khai Krepela heading up the team management at K2, it isn't exactly a surprise to see that they know what they are doing but in the BC freestyle space, this is a big move. We're stoked to see Sam continue to kill it on the new skis this season. And who knows, maybe having a tail on his skis will mean even more switch stomps.
