"What's the difference between Alpine and Nordic?"
Our signature headwear styles were born from the Vermont winter pleasures of downhill and cross-country skiiing. Fleece lined warmth for the cold, often windy exposure on the mountain. And lightweight breathability for the aerobic nature of skate skiing.
Here's the 101 on our Vermont Collection staple styles.
