JANS believes that Nils Winter Palace collection is one of this year’s hottest new looks. Professional skiers such as Kim Reichhelm love this line for its commitment to functionality without sacrificing a great look.
The whole line is fun, bright, and beautiful as well as being affordable. You’ll be able to own more than one outfit and still have money left over for a lift ticket. Be sure to check out their Lara Print Jackets — awesome! Also, available at JANS, Kari Traa’s collection this winter is as cutting-edge as she is. Active, sporty and adventurous, Traa’s custom designed layers and accessories are finally available here in the US this year. Kari Traa is not just a champion freestyle skier with three Olympic medals to her name, but also the founder of this successful sportswear brand. Her story begins in Voss, the small town in Norway where she grew up.
When she wasn’t training or competing, Kari began knitting beanies for friends and customized her own ski-gear. Her designs became so popular amongst friends and fellow skiers from around the world that the Kari Traa brand was born.
Bjorn Stova, located in the Stein Eriksen Lodge, has always been the place in Park City to find luxury skiwear. Featuring lines such as Bogner, KJUS, Sportalm, Emmegi and Moncler, Bjorn Stova is boutique shopping at its finest. Bogner takes center stage this season with a new eye-popping down jacket named “Mabel.” This brilliantly beautiful, silvery, soft and breathable top-layer is trimmed in faux-leather. The back is embellished with a contrast quilting design at the lower part that creates a figure-flattering stylized peplum. KJUS, the celebrated technical champions of the industry, is introducing their perfected Formula DLX line. With maximum stretch- ability, best weather protection, breathability and moisture management combined with timeless design, KJUS is once again a favorite among the pros.
Cole Sport discovered Toni Sailer skiwear in Europe and became the first U.S. importer of this exquisite line. They now dedicate an entire department in their Park Avenue and Deer Valley locations to the brand. Steadfast in the belief that elegance and functionality are natural partners, Sailer’s limited-edition ski jacket called “Clothilde” boldly boasts a trendy biker look. The ingenious material combines shiny satin with fur and all the newest fabric technology. This blend gives Clothilde not only fashion-forward style , but also leaves nothing to be desired in performance. Cole Sport also features Mountain Force, a brand favored by local Olympian, Heidi Voelker.
Founded in 2006 in Switzerland, Mountain Force stands for Swiss precision, intelligent technology and craftsmanship. Their style is geared toward very clean lines and a sporty look and their designs are 100% performance driven and technically advanced.
Everyone is looking forward to what is predicted to be a spectacular winter for outdoor sports. This year, thanks to amazing new fabric and construction technologies, you won’t need to sacrifice cozy comfort to be looking fantastic on the slopes!
