The twin brothers Tyler and Bryce founded Karakoram in February 2008 to follow their dream of combining their careers with our shared passion for the mountains. Skiing and snowboarding has always been a part of their lives, starting skiing at the age of 3 and eventually moving on to snowboarding in the late ’80s. Their first glimpse into backcountry exploration came about when they were in high school and had just started teaching snowboarding at Alpental Ski Area in Washington state. Since then they have been hooked. Both Tyler and Brice have degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington, AASI Level III Snowboard Certifications, a combined 16 years of mechanical design experience and a lifetime of skiing and snowboarding. With their education and experience we have set out to push backcountry gear to the next level, starting with the Split30 splitboard system. In August 2011, they announced the partnership with Jeremy Jones. Jeremy’s backcountry experience and knowledge will help continue the evolution of the Karakoram splitboard interface.
