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.

Cultivating a marriage of centuries old technologies such as dense lambswool and British waxed cotton, Alps & Meters is pleased to once again offer this proper mountain sweater as a protective homage to skiing’s oldest form of outerwear and its original pioneers, guides, and alpinists.

Love my Alpine Guide Sweater!

I’m very happy with my Alpine Guide Sweater. It is very well made, warm and unlike any others that I have seen. It’s very comfortable - and great for wearing outdoors on a horse, working in a barn, hiking - and then great to wear out for drinks and dinner. A wonderful purchase.

Good enough to buy several!

This sweater is of excellent quality. I ordered multiple colors which I never usually do! I am a chest size 43 and the large fits well. It definitely cannot be any smaller.

Gift for my husband

He absolutely loves it! It fits him perfectly, which is hard as he is 6’8” and slim . The fabric is luxurious! We will be buying more items for sure. Love the innovative designs too.
