BOSTON - January 5, 2016 -- East Boston-based custom ski company Parlor Skis today announces its partnership with popular travel lifestyle brand Hudson Sutler. The brands have joined forces to create a limited-run of custom skis built with the intrepid traveler in mind and designed to feel at home anywhere from Vermont to the Alps. Available now, the collaboration skis can be purchased on the Hudson Sutler website and at the Parlor Skis pop-up shop in Boston.
“Our goal from the beginning has been to design and manufacture custom skis for the discerning skier who recognizes the benefits of well designed gear,” said Pete Enders, co-founder of Parlor Skis. “With Hudson Sutler we see a brand that, like us, is going the extra mile in producing top-notch equipment and accessories that enhance the extracurricular activities of the modern adventurer, and are very proud of what we have teamed up to create.”
For this co-lab, Parlor developed a Hudson Sutler inspired graphic that will be available in an exclusive limited run of 12 pairs of skis. True to the brand’s custom-build ethos, the graphic can be applied to any of the Parlor ski models, allowing the customers to choose the best ski design for their style and location.
“We're big fans of getting outdoors and hitting the slopes during the winter months, and we have been looking for a way to bring that passion together with what we offer our fans,” said Grant Hewit, president and founder Hudson Sutler. “Our customers appreciate the value of well-made, durable, and beautiful gear, so we are thrilled to partner with a brand like Parlor that prides itself in careful craftsmanship and high quality product.”
The Hudson Sutler/Parlor co-lab skis are now available for $950.00 on the Hudson Sutler site at www.hudsonsutler.com/skis.
