In case you’ve been too busy skiing to notice, a little over three years ago, we launched a merchandise line so that you, our die-hard readers, could represent your friendly neighbourhood ski magazine in the streets and on the slopes. We initially kicked off the consumerism with some simple but fun and affordable t-shirts and hoodies, before partnering with brands like Bula to produce a series of on-hill products, including toques (“beanies” for all you Americans out there), face masks, and a recently released men’s and women’s base layer top, all of which are available by clicking here.
But now, just in time for winter, we’re excited to announce our most exciting product yet—a collab glove with our friends at Swany, purveyors of the most durable gloves in snowsports. With a construction worker-style look, performance leather, Thermofoam insulation, Polygiene odour-controlled lining, pre-formed 3D single grip construction, Kevlar stitching, fleece cuff and laser-engraved logo, this Forecast-branded version of Swany’s Navigator Insulated Glove is guaranteed to keep your hands toasty and dry in the coldest and wettest of conditions, while helping you look like a hearty Canadian blue collar hero.
So being that it's the holiday season, which is all about giving, and Swany prides itself on being a community-focused company, we’ve worked with the good people behind that brand to offer you the chance to win a handful (pun intended!) of these limited edition gloves for our final contest of the year.
To enter, visit @forecastski on Instagram, click on the post about this contest, and tag four members (one for each finger) of your skiing community in the comments below it. We’ll then round up all of the usernames who entered and randomly select not just one, but two sets of winners, and each group of five will receive a pair of these gloves. Note that you must live in Canada to be eligible, and that this content will close around the end of January. On behalf of everyone at Swany and Forecast, good luck, and Happy Holidays!
