After a slight lull in the white fluffy stuff we call snow, winter has returned to Aspen, and just in time. The coveted holiday season is just a few days away, with most visitors arriving the weekend prior to Christmas. People come to this special place from all over the world to celebrate the holidays. The mountain is full of skiers (well, not “Vail” full, that’s the way we like it), the town is hopping with shoppers and locals alike, and the general vibe is one of happiness and cheer. For a retail store such as us, the holiday season is very important. We do our best to make sure everyone is taken care of, from people shopping for gifts, to families renting ski equipment, our job is to make it a pleasant and enjoyable experience.
There are some very cool items being purchased right now at Miller Sports. The most stylish and technical skiwear is going out the door, with funky new colors from Peak Performance and Mammut, as well as stunning fur trimmed jackets from Toni Sailer Ski. But that’s just the designer ski wear, a new ski outfit for him or her, mid-layer, base-layer, socks, the essentials that create the foundation of your ski look and function. It’s the accessories we carry that are really turning heads this year and adding that extra something special. Our new goggle line Yniq has hit the shelves, and aren’t staying there too long. Hand-made in Sweden, the Yniq Model FOUR and Model ONE goggles incorporate a state of the art optical lens with a sleek and stylish rimless frame design. Another hot item at our store is Gino-B après ski sneakers. Made from leather and suede, with a sheer ling fur lining, these shoes are a little slice of heaven for your feet after a long day on the hill. The outside is fully treated to stand up to snowy conditions, and the classic yet sporty design is what we’re calling hipster chic. Yup, I just said that.
Stop in and check out the new digs at Miller Sports. Pick up something for that special someone, or just say hello and grab a mini Toblerone from the jar downstairs in the rental lounge.
