Three years after the inception of the National Ski Patrol in 1938, the group dedicated to mountain “service & safety” welcomed its first female member, Dorothy McClung. A member of the San Diego Ski Club, Dorothy McClung was a natural athlete and was appointed to the Ski Patrol after just four years on skis. A formidable and powerful racer within the Southern California event circuit, Dorothy gained recognition and notoriety when she and five other men of the San Diego Ski Club skied into Cuymaca Peak to deliver 150 pounds of food and nourishment to stranded Rangers whose job it was to scan the skies for enemy aircraft during the height of World War II.  To honor Dorothy and the first cadre of female ski patrollers, Alps & Meters has designed the Cashmere Ski Race Knit Patrol.  Crafted of 100% Italian cashmere yarns and displaying the iconic uniform patrol cross, this nostalgic ski sweater is cut in classic crewneck silhouette with rich ribbing details throughout making the garment an ideal companion to the female alpinist on or off-piste.
