THE STORY

The National Ski Association was formed in Ishpeming, Michigan in 1905. Honing both the organization and the competitiveness of its members and participants, the NSA recognized the first Americans to ski under the flag of the United States in international competition in 1928.

From Gretchen Fraser’s first American gold medal at the ’48 games in Switzerland to Billy Kid’s first male medal at Innsbruck in ’64, the legends and moments that have followed have placed American go-for-glory guts on display for the world which remains a living legacy celebrated every 4 years.

The Authentic American Alpine collection celebrates this legacy of American skiing with a series of knitwear pieces entirely Made in the USA.
