Inspired by Olympic super-skiers and snowboarders, and the snowy slopes these athletes have conquered, Stitch Mountain showcases a beautiful collection of cozy, cold-weather knitwear. Thirty warm and stylish designs include hats, headbands, cowls, mittens, scarves, and sweaters, and stunning photography captures dazzling Tahoe and Squaw Valley winter landscapes. Even non-athletes and weekend warriors will want to wear these!
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Stitch Mountain will be donated to the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team Foundation to support year-round athlete training, development, competition, and educational needs.
