Celebrating tradition

Often considered one of the first formalized downhill races in the history of alpine sport and the first in North America, the men of Dartmouth College’s Dartmouth Outing Club took to Mount Moosilauke in the state of New Hampshire to put their wooden skis to the test on a makeshift course of planted posts designating the twists and turns of what was to become the future site of the USA’s National Downhill slalom 5 years later. While often debated, the Outing Club’s first Mount Moosliauke race adventure is most widely recognized as the year 1927.

Designed by Tradition

Intrepid souls from the Dartmouth Outing Club would race down the carriage road from their headquarters on Mt. Moosilauke, starting the National Slalom in 1927 which was instrumental in bringing ski racing into the mainstream in the United States.

Forged Performance

100% traceable pure Mongolian cashmere from the legendary Italian mill Botto Giuseppe that is Cradle to Cradle certified - a leading certification of sustainability, durability and quality.

Old School Chic

Great looking sweater, love the throwback style like several I've seen in old skiing photos. Cashmere is very comfortable, a good mid-weight.

Note that in person the green looks even better than the photos. It's more of an olive heather color and the 1927 is cream rather than white. The impact of the two just works, I've received lots of compliments. The knit texture on the arms is a great touch, more apparent in person as well.

I highly recommend.
