A staple of alpine sportsmen throughout the world, the protection, comfort, and durability of a proper sweater has accompanied mountain guides since the first ascents and descents by the Scandinavians of the 19th century.  Combining the engineered comfort of traditional woolen knitwear with the protective qualities of rich wide wale corduroy the High West Alpine Guide Sweater is an authentic ski pays homage to the founding of Wester Resort skiing in the United States.  With deference and respect for legends such as Pete Siebret, Whip Jones, and Dick Durrance who became the fathers of such storied destinations such as Vail and Aspen Highlands, this timeless knitwear garment is as sturdy & rugged as the cowboys who pioneered the Rocky Mountain boom of U.S. winter recreation during the 1950, 60s, and 70s.

The Story

“Go West young man.” After WWII, ex-soldiers and trainers from the U.S. 10th Mountain Division led the boon in
winter recreation within the Rockies and Western region of the United States. With deep ties to resorts such as Vail
and Aspen Highlands, legends such as Pete Siebret, Whip Jones, and Dick Durrance became the fathers of Western
resort skiing and winter recreation in the United States. Having trained or been trained on Camp Hale’s storied terrain
when associated with the famed 10th Mountain Division the pioneers of U.S. skiing turned passion into vision and an
alpine sport experience which stands to this day. Channeling the sturdy and adventurous soul of United States Western ski resorts and regions the High West Alpine Guide Sweater is first class but rugged garment of evoking Colorado’s glory days as the cowboy boomtown of winter recreation in the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s.

Forged Performance

The High West Alpine Guide Sweater's extrafine merino is soft and durable making for an ideal midlayer on the slopes, while shining on its own off-piste or on warmer days.

Designed by Tradition

The signature ski sweater has been reimagined with merino and corduroy to create a version that celebrates the origins of American skiing in the High West.

Worth the Wait!

I’m 6’2” 195 and the Large fits perfectly. Ample room for a base or mid layer and very warm. This is my second A&M sweater and not my last.
