Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico hosted the Paint for Peaks Art Auction to benefit breast cancer awareness February 21, 2015. Dylan and nineteen other artists from New Mexico with a wide variety of styles painted K2 snowboards. Dylan’s painting drew a lot of attention and raised quite a bit of money. He met some very talented artists and had a great time.
