The Story

It was a frigid and snowy day in March 1938, when the race course for the National Slalom was devised on Mount Mansfield, Vermont USA. Taking stock of barren temperatures, 50 mile per hour winds, and limited visibility, Charles “Minnie” Dole, veteran of the storied 10th Mountain Division and organizer of the race at hand, came to recognize that matters of precaution and safety would be required to ensure that the day’s event did not end in injury for participants and spectators alike. Discussing matters with fellow race organizer, Roger Langley, at the top of the famed Nose Dive Trail the gentlemen conceived of the National Ski Patrol on the spot and thus forged a bond between racing and patrolling that has stood for almost 100 years.

In celebration of lives dedicated to mountain service & safety, the Alps & Meters Ski Race Knit Patrol sweater proudly displays the National Ski Patrol's iconic uniform patrol cross packaged in a robust knitwear garment honoring the tradition & legacy of patrolmen worldwide.

Designed by Tradition

Emblazoned with the classic Patrol Cross, the Ski Race Knit "Patrol" honors the unique bond and legacy shared by patrollers and racers.

Forged Performance

A crew-neck sweater ideal for mid-layer wear occasions, or worn as outerwear in warmer weather, the Ski Race Knit "Patrol" is a legacy of the time-honored ski sweater. Cut in a handsome crew neck silhouette and knitted from 100% lambswool with a water repellent coating, this durable sweater is a performance piece inspired by the elegance and flamboyance of ski racers of the past.
