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 fact, having lit the spark that ignited the fire of the United States’ first formal cadre of trained patrollers, it was such that many legendary competitors of that 1938 race were among the National Ski Patrol’s earliest members including Dick Durrance who came to influence racing, patrolling, and resort development throughout the Rocky Mountains during the 40s and 50s.

In celebration of such unity, the Alps & Meters Ski Race Knit “Patrol” sweater combines the racer’s classic crewneck silhouette with the iconic uniform patrol cross, intertwining the stories, romance, and traditions of alpine sports founding fathers.

Tough, hard wearing, gorgeous

I love this jumper. It’s a great layer that replaces a jacket, is breathable and permits a full range of athletic motion. It’s also dramatic and visually striking.

Superb Fabric; Uneven Fit

I’ve bought two of these jumpers; one online and one in Jackson. Very well-made but the fit is tough. The collar is too large; does not fit snuggly, which is important in cold weather. If you go-down a size the sleeve length is an issue. I wanted to love this but just couldn’t manage it, so it spends a lot of time in my clothes drawers.
