U.S. Ski Team American Alpine Sports Cap
Alps & Meters
During the post WWII era, skiing in the United States saw a boon of development driven in great part by former members of the U.S. Army’s storied 10th Mountain Division. Members of the 10th had been recruited for their born skill on skis and those abilities and passion would see the founding of many of today’s most world renowned ski resorts such as Aspen, Vail, and Beaver Creek. It is not surprising then that many early alpine recreationalists wore equipment of military origins to shield their eyes from the powerful glare of the Colorado sun. Of such equipment, well fitting caps, with identifiable insignias and badges, became a standard staple among skiing’s early athletes.
Designed with the same protective intentions of those mountain caps of the 1950’s, the American Alpine Sports Cap U.S. Ski Team is a sportswear essential which evokes the tradition of the United States’ first winter sports club members, Olympians, and Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes. Made with comfortable cotton, standard curved brim, leather back tab, and rich Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team logo, the American Alpine Sports Cap U.S. Ski Team is an ideal companion for the American alpine athlete and passionate supporter of United States Skiing.
