Cashmere Alpine Guide Sweater-Alps&Meters

THE STORY

Travel to, and amidst, majestic mountain environments has offered skiers a sense of freedom and wonder since Scandinavians first strapped wooden planks to their feet in Norway during the late 19th century. During the early advent of skiing as a mode of travel and then throughout is transition to 19th and 20th century winter sport, a proper ski sweater was considered standard equipment for mountain adventures due to its technically advanced woolen fibers which offered warmth, comfortable range of motion, and natural moisture wicking characteristics.

During the ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s knitwear offered skiers a versatile expression of performance and style packaged in a traditional aesthetic born from the rich and storied heritage of alpine sport. Adopted by alpine guides within mountain locales from Aspen to Chamonix, such classic knitwear garments are respected for tried and true characteristics delivering winter-ready protection.

I have played outdoors my entire life and I have never found apline gear that keeps me warm and I love. This Alpine wear is the best of the best and all I wear skiing.

I love the ski race knit patrol sweater. It is cozy and made with fine cashmere. I wear it on the slopes or a casual day out on the town.
