For years, we wanted to have a Run the Alps buff. But, we never saw one we liked– until our Ambassador Hillary Gerardi tipped us off to Skida’s “Tour,” made in her home state of Vermont.
We’ve created our own design with Maine artist and Run the Alps trail runner Allison Webster Kraus. It features an iconic wrap-around scene of the Alps, printed on a brushed thermal fabric that’s soft on the inside. It’s perfect for a chilly day on the move to the next hut on the Tour du Mont-Blanc, having a cappuccino at Tête à Thé in Argentière, France– like our friend Georgie here– or wherever trails take you.
Oh, and “Tour?” That’s a french abbreviation for “tour de cou,” as in, “around the neck.” (It’s as if Skida knew these were headed for the Alps!)
See the many ways our tour can be worn– as hat, scarf and more– in this creative video from Skida.
