With a point of origin derived from proper European ski race sweaters worn by pioneering female slalom skiers, the Women’s Ski Race Knit is knit in a traditional silhouette with a Forged Performance material complexion. Combining soft cashmere-merino blend and a traditional graphic treatment, this piece represents the pure romance of ski racing from both the past and present.

THE STORY

Initially a form of recreation reserved for men, ski racing racing’s romance and elegance came into clear view in 1931 during the first unofficial FIS World Alpine Championships and then again in 1948 during the V Winter Olympics in St. Moritz, Switzerland. 1931 marked Esme MacKinnon’s British victories in the downhill and slalom, the first for any woman and a resounding transformation of a sport finally graced and refined by female precision, style, and aplomb. Seventeen years later, inspired by MacKinnon, women compete in their first downhill and slalom events of the ’48 Winter Olympics and names such as Hedy Schlunegger of Switzerland and Gretchen Fraser of the United States would be awarded the first gold medals in the Downhill and Slalom, events respectively.

Comfortable and protective, with elements of properly knitted fiber construction and a rich yarn complexion, Alps & Meters’ Ski Race Knit conveys a story of alpine sports’ first racing personalities, their passion for skiing, and their highly fashionable taste on and off the mountain.

Love this sweater!

This is an absolutely lovely sweater. I realize the cost is high but the quality of this garment is extremely high! This sweater will last longer than I will and it is so well made, it will last generations. Right now the temperature outside is 7 degrees with a wind chill of -22. I am currently wearing the garment and am quite comfortable inside and outside. You will not go wrong with investing your money in any item from this company.
