I got a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach reading this article. Especially after K2 claimed to be keeping the Stowe plant in operation as late as January of this year (see 2nd article) .

Can Volkl and Marker products be far behind? If K2 does 'move' Volkl then I intend to sadly 'move' to another brand.
Snowcone, I've been eyeing various Volkl models for my next pair (I just have convince my wife that it's a good idea! ) Anyway, I would have to agree that if they move Volkl operations to China, I will look into other manufacturers!
