Watch 100 Years of Ski Fashion

With age comes wisdom. And Gore-Tex.

If there’s one thing that really greases our gears in the ski industry, it’s the progression of the sport.

I thought I had my retro look on lock, but these cats aren’t playing around. From the humble leather and wool of the 20s to the breathable, wickable, indestructible space-ready fabric technology of today, we really have come a long way.
