TORONTO – September 17, 2015 – With the 2015-2016 snow sport season kicking off in just a few short weeks, the seven members of Snow Sports Canada happily took delivery of their first shipment of custom designed equipment bags from Official Supplier, High Sierra.
For the first time in the history of the seven member organizations, Team Canada national team athletes will now enjoy use of bags specifically designed and manufactured for the technical needs of their equipment. “We wanted to design a bag that fit the technical requirements of the athletes, and also represented Canadians as a whole. I think we were able to achieve that goal with this amazing collection” said High Sierra Canada General Manager Paul DeCorso.
The teams and athletes will travel through five continents across the globe this season with High Sierra’s gear displaying a balanced mix of style and functionality, “We worked closely with Snow Sports Canada to decide which design best-represented the teams, as well as what technical features they needed,” added DeCorso.
The result is a unique bag design that will stand out from the crowd and add some signature Canadian swagger to the team gear. Fans, keep your eyes open for them on World Cup hills across the globe this fall. “High Sierra’s partnership with Snow Sports Canada brings an essential and dependable luggage component to our team.
This has been accomplished through attention to the grinding travel needs of sport – airline drubbing, jamming into vans and recurrent movement between training and race sites. This durability is combined with a distinguished look and functional features that boosts our athletes’ ability to embrace the mobility of our sport.” – Thomas Holland, High Performance Director, Cross Country Ski Canada.
