Ver­bier in Switzer­land is known for attract­ing some of the best rid­ers from all over the world. It seems only fit­ting that the *Freeride World Tour was born there as well. Back in the 1970’s, some of the great­est ski leg­ends wore the first Pow­der­horn jack­ets at Ver­bier – leg­ends like Ace Kvale and John Falkin­er. Things have come full cir­cle as Pow­der­horn is now one of the spon­sors of the Freeride World Tour 2012, a 3‑month long tour of the great­est rid­ers at some of the world’s best resorts.

Today we wel­come Pow­der­horn to The Clymb with their snow-proof out­er­wear and appar­el. Like the rid­ers of Freeride World Tour, Pow­der­horn con­tin­ues to push the future of ski appar­el to the next level.

Also, leave your mark on the moun­tain with Kom­bi gloves. From the Olympic podi­um on the hands of Nan­cy Greene, to their cur­rent team line­up fea­tur­ing some of the best freeskiers and snow­board­ers, Kombi’s phi­los­o­phy to fuse fash­ion and tex­tile tech­nol­o­gy is clear­ly reflected.

In mem­o­ry of Jim Jack. Ski in peace.

Camp Out and Shines So Bright

The skate, snow, and surf cul­tures man­age to be unde­ni­ably unique yet linked, each leav­ing their own last­ing imprint on soci­ety. Often por­trayed in pop cul­ture as rebels, slack­ers, and trou­ble­mak­ers, ear­ly influ­encers of these move­ments have got­ten the last laugh – evolv­ing these cul­tures into inno­va­tors in ath­let­ics, music, and clothing.

SESSIONS would make the per­fect case study for such an evo­lu­tion. Open­ing the first ded­i­cat­ed snow­board shop in the Unit­ed States in the ear­ly 80’s — when snow­board­ers were still con­sid­ered per­sona non gra­ta at ski resorts with bungee-fas­tened boards on their feet – it has since grown into an inter­na­tion­al leader in action sports appar­el and tech­ni­cal outerwear.

A lot of cities are final­ly see­ing a reprieve from the scorch­ing sum­mer sun and as the tem­per­a­tures low­er, it has made enjoy­ing our favorite out­door activ­i­ties more bearable.

As we enter the sea­son of crunchy leaves under our feet and the smell of pump­kin and cin­na­mon, The Clymb thought it would be great to fea­ture some fall-inspired appar­el for women. Mem­bers of The Clymb will receive up to 70% off Niki­ta wom­ens fall lifestyle appar­el, bean­ies and snow appar­el — because, before you know it, snow will be here, too.
