Hey Stones fans -- is your band on your snowboard?

Okay, so you're an uber-Rolling Stones fan. You've got the concert t-shirts, the box sets, the bootleg DVDs. But what about your skis? Are you showing your support for The World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band every time you climb on a chair lift? Let's take care of that . . . with limited edition Rolling Stones skis and snowboards from K2.
Two of the band-inspired models (the Rolling Stones K2 SideShow and SideStash skis) are already for sale, with the final two (K2 Rolling Stones Recoil and 102) landing on shelves in late October and December, respectively. Each ski features graphics taken from the band’s iconic past (like the infamous Lips) along with references to their various live/tour posters. According to the manufacturer, the last two models feature technology “designed for all ability levels in any snow conditions and twin tech sidewall construction for increased durability,” which we’re almost certain is important when undertaking a controlled tumble down a snow-covered mound of jagged rocks.
