“My goal has always been to evolve the sport of skiing and the equipment we use,” Bode said. “A partnership with SCARPA is a natural fit with the company’s long standing track record of developing innovative new ski boots, and innovative footwear for all aspects of the mountains. I’m excited to work with the SCARPA team on their launch of a new line of boots for Fall 2022, and other new ski boots in the future.”
Bode began wearing SCARPA climbing shoes as a child while climbing with his family and has continued to use other SCARPA products in his outdoor adventures. He said he is excited to work with a brand that not only focuses on innovation, but also keeps sustainability at the forefront of research and development.
“As we prepare to launch our 4-Quattro boot, our first collection of ski boots that are more focused on the alpine-ski world, we wanted to make sure that we built a boot performance-oriented, light and technical enough for the best skiers in the world,” said President of SCARPA Sandro Parisotto. “As we broaden the lens of who SCARPA ski boots are made for, we’re excited for this partnership between the market’s leading ski mountaineering brand and a skier proven as one of the best in the world.”
Bode, who recently relocated to Big Sky, Montana, with his family, has won 33 World Cups, six Olympic medals, five World Championship medals, four golds in World Championships and six World Cup globes.
