THE STORY OF THE PATROL PARKA
“The idea of a National Ski Patrol was conceived on March 7th, 1938. Location - half way up the Nose Dive Trail, Mount Mansfield, Vermont. Temperature—minus five degrees. Wind velocity - 50 miles an hour. Trudging up the trail to see that the Patrol for the National Slalom was all set, the subject of a National Ski Patrol was broached, and the committee was formed on the spot." - CHARLES "MINNIE" DOLE
FOUNDER OF THE NATIONAL SKI PATROL
Ever since that cold, blustery day in 1938, performance outerwear that meets the needs of patrollers has been essential. Warmth, range of motion, and easy access to equipment like maps, first-aid, spare ski parts, and communication tools make all the difference when working in high alpine environments.
In keeping with the motto of "safety & service", and with deep reverence for the classic garments of ski patrol pioneers, Alps & Meters has designed the Patrol Parka.
Influenced by early 20th century garment construction methods, the Patrol Parka delivers optimal Forged Performance protection for the Gentleman Skier. Delivering high grade natural material protection and an internal blend of contemporary technologies, this traditional parka channels the passion and commitment to the mountains which energized the inception of the world’s first National Ski Patrol.
