The story

In just a short period of time Elevenate has gone from being a small project to an established brand with our garments being sold in over 150 selected ski shops around the world. We have grown in many ways but our passion and philosophy remains the same – we make clothes that we want to wear in the mountains. Tailored and anatomically shaped garments made from the best materials. Designed in Åre and tested in the mountains at our doorstep and on our travels. After a lifetime on skis and more than 20 years in the Alps, with over 6000 ski days between us, it was simply a natural progression to create Elevenate. We moved from Verbier to Åre and started making ski wear the way we like it. Even if I guide less nowadays and Sara doesn’t compete anymore we still ski as much as possible all over the world.
