A sold-out ceremony ushers eight athletes and industry pioneers into the fold.

Hundreds packed into Seattle’s Bell Harbor Events Center on April 14 to welcome eight new Hall of Famers, while concurrently celebrating K2’s 50th year of ski-gear innovation. It was a fitting nod to the sport's history and future—a recognition of how far we’ve come and a celebration the people who helped pave the way.

Congrats to the inductees:
