Winton Flesser OWNER

After running family camping shops in the early 1980s, towards the close of the decade Winton opened the first installment of his K2 trajectory. Along with business partners with similar passions, Winton created K2 Base Camp, a specialist outdoor, rock-climbing and adventure gear store. Soon after, Winton took over the reins of K2 Base Camp in a solo capacity and has since taken the enterprise from strength to strength. K2 Base Camp is an expression not only of Winton’s deep love for nature and the outdoors, but also his need for adventure. Though never unfulfilled in his past years in business, Winton stays motivated (in his words, “keeps his brain balanced”) by returning to nature as often as possible to feed his soul, for balance and well-being.
