Cashmere Ski Race Knit Sports Club - Moosilauke
Alps & Meters
Often considered one of the first formalized downhill races in the history of alpine sport and the first in North America, the men of Dartmouth College’s Dartmouth Outing Club took to Mount Moosilauke in the state of New Hampshire to put their wooden skis to the test on a makeshift course of planted posts designating the twists and turns of what was to become the future site of the USA’s National Downhill slalom 5 years later. While often debated, the Outing Club’s first Mount Moosliauke race adventure is most widely recognized as the year 1927.
A celebration of the holy trinity of ski racing, the Ski Race Knit “Sports Club” evokes the heritage and tradition of the 1922 Vasaloppet Cross Country Race, the 1927 Mount Moosilauke Carriage Road Race, and the 1928 Murren Inferno. Emblazoned with the inaugural year of each storied race and with color applications inspired by each event’s point of origin, this classic knitwear garment is woven of 100% cashmere Italian yarn from the historic Botto Giuseppe mill of Valle Moso.
