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 classic luxe materials of pure cashmere and Italian suede, Alps & Meters is pleased to once again offer this luxurious version of our signature mountain sweater as an homage to skiing’s oldest form of protection, and its original pioneers, guides, and alpinists.

The quality of the sweater is only surpassed by the customer service

Am absolute gem of a sweater. Being a HUGE alps fan I knew the quality would be there and the sweater surpasses all expectations. As stated in the title the customer service is the best in the game. There was an issue with USPS and grant took care of everything which I could not appreciate more!

Best alpine guide sweater yet!

I have a few of these and this season's cashmere option is the best yet. Super soft, color is unique, and the sizing is true. Will be wearing this a lot this winter.
