Ski touring is the fastest growing segment of the sport, both in the UK and in Europe. This has been a trend for several years now, but Covid forced an acceleration due to resort closures and lack of travel opportunities, creating an opportunity for skiers to access the mountains under their own steam.
Maier Sports has developed specialist clothing that works for ski tourers, winter hikers, snowshoe enthusiasts and cross country skiers. The new collection includes specialised and highly functional products from waterproof weather protection to highly breathable softshell combinations. The precise fit and the exceptional freedom of movement the pants offer, provide particular advantages for all winter activities.
- Maier Sports introduces a strong ski touring focus for its AW2022 collection, targeting a new customer that is active both on and off piste and wants versatile garments that can be used for different activities
- Sustainability is at the heart of all Maier Sports clothing collections and the introduction of Lavalan® wool insulation (in the new Caurus Jacket) shows its commitment to eco-friendly fabrics.
- Available in the usual large range of Maier Sports size options
