Swiss Guide and owner of Pro Guiding Service, Martin Volken, approached K2 years ago about building a randonnée ski for serious ski mountaineering. It needed to be lightweight for blitzing the routes he was pioneering in Washington's Cascades, but also rock solid for tackling imposing first descents such as Spider Mountain's Arachnophobia. So we built him a ski: two sheets of metal, stout flex, lightweight, and extremely versatile. He approved and called it the "Shuksan," which is Nooksack Indian for "steep and rugged." Nice choice, Martin.
