The latest material technology and product design have been incorporated into the extremities brand, resulting in leading-edge gear developed and tested under some of the most severe conditions in the world.
The difference in temperature between resort level and the highest lift is always striking – especially when the sun drops behind neighbouring peaks or as freezing cloud closes in.
Carolyn Budding, marketing director at extremities, said: “Skiing or boarding at altitude brings its own challenges. We’ve all had the experience of hitting an ice storm just off the top lift when the temperature plummets to minus 20 or minus 30. Situations like that soon show up any shortcomings in your kit.
“Over the last 12 months materials technology has continued to evolve , and we’re really excited about our range this winter. We know it will keep skiers warm no matter what the weather and no matter where you are on the mountain.”
