Designed by Tradition

Early mountain travelers, relying on long wooden skis for efficient winter mobility, found the combination of woolen fibers and the comfortable ergonomics of knitted yards to make for an ideal combination of external protection, internal warmth, and optimal range of motion. This same appreciation for knitwear’s unique qualities were eventually also embraced by the world’s first Ski Patrol founded at Mount Mansfield, Vermont in 1938.

THE STORY

Long has been the presence of knitwear within the sport of skiing. A timeless technology, knitwear has protected alpinists since the advent of skiing in Norway during the middle ages.

Worn as dense mid-layers and evolving to include additional elements of utility such as easily accessible pockets and reinforced paneling, Alps & Meters embraces the knitwear narrative embedded in alpine sport to introduce the Patrol Knit Plus.

An authentic ski sweater designed to adhere to the classic principles of heavy gauge knitwear, the Patrol Knit Plus considers the performance needs of Mount Mansfield’s inaugural class of Patrollers while ensuring a Forged Performance upgrade of such genuine garments through the addition of a contemporary technologies aimed to aid those who, today continue, to uphold the legacy of the National Ski Patrol’s dedication to 80 years of winter safety and service.
