PSIA-AASI welcomes Lorpen as a new Official Supplier. Lorpen makes technical socks that outperform in any environment, and now members can access Lorpen products to keep their feet warm and dry when they’re on the hill all day teaching and developing future skiers and riders.
With more than 30 years of experience, Lorpen socks are designed by mountaineers, skiers, and outdoor enthusiasts. Lorpen has engineered some of the most advanced and innovative socks on the market. Their T3 layering technology combines natural and synthetic fibers to maximize warmth, cooling, and moisture management in any climate.
“For years, instructors have known the value of having a well-fitted sock that provides warmth and moisture wicking while they teach all day. No one wants to wear socks that slip down or bunch up in their boots while they’re on the slopes,” says Lorpen Sales Director Michel Gogniat. “Lorpen socks are manufactured in the Pyrenees mountains, and like PSIA-AASI, we share the same passion for the environment and the outdoors.”
Gogniat said that Lorpen is the only sock brand in the world that manufactures socks with three layers of yarn differentiated, what they call their T3 Technology. Lorpen’s design ensures the sock fits each foot properly, without the wrinkles or creases that can cause blisters. Lorpen uses stretch nylon yarn to improve elasticity and create long-lasting socks so their socks fit for years after lots of use and washes.
“We are thrilled to provide our members with special access to the best high performance socks on the market,” said PSIA-AASI CEO Nicholas Herrin. “Lorpen socks will keep our instructors’ feet warm and dry – from wet snowy days to warm spring days.”
Herrin said that it’s great to partner with a sock manufacture who shares PSIA-AASI’s passion for the mountains. He added that, “Their socks are also really comfortable, they don’t bunch.”
From downhill turns to Nordic skiing, Lorpen has the socks to help skiers and riders stay warm and comfortable on the slopes this season. To access PSIA-AASI member’s only pricing, login to thesnowpros.org/shop. To learn more about Lorpen socks, check out this video.
