The Story

‚ÄúGo West young man.‚ÄĚ After WWII, ex-soldiers and trainers from the U.S. 10th Mountain Division led the boon in
winter recreation within the Rockies and Western region of the United States. With deep ties to resorts such as Vail
and Aspen Highlands, legends such as Pete Siebret, Whip Jones, and Dick Durrance became the fathers of Western
resort skiing and winter recreation in the United States. Having trained or been trained on Camp Hale’s storied terrain
when associated with the famed 10th Mountain Division the pioneers of U.S. skiing turned passion into vision and an
alpine sport experience which stands to this day. Channeling the sturdy and adventurous soul of United States Western ski resorts and regions the High West Alpine Guide Sweater is first class but rugged garment of evoking Colorado’s glory days as the cowboy boomtown of winter recreation in the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s.
