Favorite Alpine Item of the Week!

Hestra gloves and mittens from Sweden

This week we are keeping our hands toasty warm with Hestra gloves and mittens!  Hand crafted in Hestra, Sweden, the Magnusson Family has been master glove makers since 1936.  Sewn entirely by hand, many of these gloves take up to 2 hours to make.  The craft of creating such detailed gloves is almost a lost art, with only 2 members of the Magnusson Family (and the only Swedes) to become certified in over 47 years.  From gloves made with supple leathers to waterproof nylon or even gloves (and mittens) with adjustable built-in heaters these gloves are sure to make you want to stay out on the mountain for a few more runs!

Favorite Alpine Item of the Week

GoPro video camerasThe items we are eying this week are GoPro Cameras! The brand new Hero3 cameras have just arrived in the white, silver and black editions!   GoPros have evolved from 35mm cameras to the new Hero3, which shoots 1080p HD quality videos, can shoot up to 30 images/ second and are Wi-Fi compatible.  With the ability to pull still images from videos and travel underwater down to 197 feet and to the top of Mt. Everest, GoPro Cameras have been dubbed the “worlds most versatile camera”.   So this holiday season, give the gift of a GoPro Camera and be a Hero!

Favorite Alpine Item of the Week

laundromat wool hand knit sweater

This week the cold weather is blowing down from Canada and it brought our new favorite item, Laundromat Sweaters!  These unique, Fair Trade sweaters are hand knit by artisans in small villages of Nepal, allowing them to continue to keep old traditions alive while supporting their families.  Made with 100% wool and lined with fleece or cotton, these sweaters will keep you warm all winter long. This holiday season, stop by the Alpine Sport Shop. You’ll be supporting your local businesses and also supporting small cottage industries. (And looking fashionable while doing it!)
