Recently took a trip to HO/Hyperlite headquarters...
It was a great experience and the hospitality was barr none! We got a chance to see where the prototypes are built as well as get a sneak peak at some stuff I am not allowed to talk about for next year... so don't ask!

The warehousing is incredible...nothing quite like standing in a 60 thousand sq foot building filled with all the stuff you love!


See our facebook page for some more cool shots of our trip to Radar Lake, Square One, D3 skis and HO/Hyperlite. There are some photos up already and more going up throughout the week.

much kooler than rainbows.... unless of course it is a rainbow slider with a rider leaning into a deep nose press with a double rainbow in the background. :D

I thought walking into the Leinenkugel's Brewery warehouse and seeing Summer Shandy and Sunset Wheat pallets stacked two stories high was amazing... this might actually have that beat!!!

Wow, I'm jelly! Where is this place?

Haha, Thanks guys. It was a pretty cool trip. This is just one room in the warehouse ...there were four or five more this size right next to it! All of the warehouses and factories we visited were in Washington and each brand had similar sized warehousing.

But let's get real here... there is not much cooler then a Double Complete Rainbow.

Check out a small collection of Herb O'brien's old ski collection hanging on the wall at Radar Lake! Blast from the past!
