from Wanaka New Zealand has added Dane Tudor to their team. Tudor joins Jossi Wells making two of the best skiers on in the business representing the brand.

Tudor is regarded as one of the best all round skiers by the industry and his peers alike. His film segments include epic-park, backcountry freestyle and spine tingling big mountain descents. On top of a busy film schedule Tudor is prequalified to compete in this years Winter Dew Tour and has his eyes set on the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

Tudor said he was stoked to be on board. "I wore the kit all last winter and the stuff is amazing, it keeps you warm and you can wear it days on end because the merino wool doesn't stink".

Mons Royale founder Hamish Acland says Tudor is a welcome addition. "He's one of the new breed of skiers who is redefining what one thinks is possible in the big mountain arena and we are stoked he is wearing Mons Royale when he is throwing down".

Signing Tudor to the team is a significant move for the brand. Until now Mons Royale had only
