The folks at PSIA-AASI Official Supplier Icebreaker are constantly struck by the irony of the outdoor industry promoting the use of petroleum-based, synthetic fabrics such as polyester and polypropylene as the “ideal technical layer.”
They believe there is a better way and nature has the answers. If you share with us how you “move to natural,” such as carpooling to the ski hill or not using plastic bags, you can enter your name for a chance to win a spring skiing outfit!
Here are some essential spring skiing and riding Icebreaker products you can shop for right now.
