With a point of origin derived from proper European ski race sweaters worn by pioneering female slalom skiers, the Women’s Ski Race Knit is knit in a traditional silhouette with a Forged Performance material complexion. Combining soft cashmere-merino blend and a traditional graphic treatment, this piece represents the pure romance of ski racing from both the past and present.

THE STORY

Initially a form of recreation reserved for men, ski racing racing’s romance and elegance came into clear view in 1931 during the first unofficial FIS World Alpine Championships and then again in 1948 during the V Winter Olympics in St. Moritz, Switzerland. 1931 marked Esme MacKinnon’s British victories in the downhill and slalom, the first for any woman and a resounding transformation of a sport finally graced and refined by female precision, style, and aplomb. Seventeen years later, inspired by MacKinnon, women compete in their first downhill and slalom events of the ’48 Winter Olympics and names such as Hedy Schlunegger of Switzerland and Gretchen Fraser of the United States would be awarded the first gold medals in the Downhill and Slalom, events respectively.

Comfortable and protective, with elements of properly knitted fiber construction and a rich yarn complexion, Alps & Meters’ Ski Race Knit conveys a story of alpine sports’ first racing personalities, their passion for skiing, and their highly fashionable taste on and off the mountain.

Combining softly blend yarns, total comfort, and traditional personality, this alpine sportswear garment commands a first class expression representing the pure romance of ski racing from both the past and present.

My New Favorite Sweater

Okay - I’ll wear this as a base layer or mid-layer under my ski jackets and it’s my new favorite! It’s so soft and feminine - I’m just upset I didn’t order it before this year’s ski season. Love!!! Fits perfect and true to size.

Long awaited dream come true!

I had wanted this sweater for a long time. While I think it's a little short on me, I think that's more my body's fault than the sweater. I wore it for spring skiing just yesterday and it was comfortable before, during, and after. It's not SUPER soft (but plenty soft) and that gives me confidence the sweater will last. The color and styling are fantastic--so much so that my college-aged daughter commented on how nice it was!
