Possibly the most versatile board in their Enjoyer’s Collection, the K2 Party Platter is made for all-mountain madness. As at home in nipple deep snow as it is ripping up groomers and chomping sidehits. This platter is serving up a double dose of stoke and froth. What comes before Part B?
Capitalising on the short ‘n’ fat revolution that swept the industry, good things well and truly come in small packages with the Party Platter. The sheer width of the board allows you to size down significantly from your regular deck. Increasing the surface area via the width rather than the length delivers a board that is far more nimble, stable and floaty than it has any right to be.
“Never miss a party…good for the nerves–like celery.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
The elongated nose and 1cm taper tip the scales to premium float and the hefty rocker up front keeps you plaining well above the snowline. The Party Platter is chomping at the bit for tight tree runs and slashing windlips.
Not just a board for snorkel deep days, the Party Platter is serving up pint size portions of fun all over the mountain. A lengthy midbody camber offers up a controlled and dynamic ride, with the Ollie Bar sitting lengthways between the inserts to power up the board and add some extra pep in your step. On hardpack snow, the added width in the body comes into play again, giving you the option to get extra low into your carves without catching toes.

The shorter deck and lively camber profile open up a world of possibilities for freestyle, both on and off the trail map. The lower swing weight, softer nose, and playful biax glass lend themselves to big spins, smooth as sin butters and more forgiving landings.
The Party Platter comes in smaller sizes, so ladies don’t be afraid to strap in and take off. Despite its small stature, this is a board designed to be big- monstrous slashes, gigantic stomps and colossal portions of fun. What time is it? Party time.
