Two Colorado brands team up with infamous Instagram account @slalomtokyodrift

Today we are excited to announce a partnership with the infamous Instagram account, @SlalomTokyoDrift, and Ski Town All-Stars, Premium Hat Supplier, also based in Vail, Colorado. The product collaboration is meant to raise awareness and funds for the YES Foundation. YES’s mission since the organization was founded in 1968 has been to inspire and challenge youth with physical and mental activities that foster life-long respect for self, others, and the environment. $5 for every item sold will be donated to the YES Foundation.

“I've partnered with Youth Enrichment Services for one year as a volunteer coach and member of their strategic planning board. I previously coached Wildcat's U16 team for four years, which taught me to enjoy coaching skiing as much as I did racing. YES is a totally different challenge, and even more rewarding. We take inner-city kids from Boston into the mountains, and for many, this is their first-ever time skiing. The feeling of watching someone get off a chairlift and make it down a trail for the first time is inspirational, especially for those of us who have grown up with the love of the mountains. Obviously we go get waffles from Waffle House after. Skiing has never been a diverse or accessible sport, and YES helps bridge the gap by offering opportunities to get onto the slopes that many of these kids would never have otherwise.” explained, Ian Macomber, Founder of Slalom Tokyo Drift. 

SYNC will be providing the two tee shirts offered, and Ski Town All-Stars will be supplying the two styles of hats in the collection. The embellishment of the product will also be contributed to the collaboration by Ski Town All-Stars.

“We are extremely excited to launch this collab with Slalom Tokyo Drift and Ski Town All-Stars. Since the inception of SYNC, creating opportunities for all athletes, which we deem everyone to be an athlete, has been at the core of our existence. Having a platform to be able to support foundations, such as YES, gives us the opportunity to use our skill set in order to grow mountain athletics, and introduce skiing to many more groups of people with diverse backgrounds.” said, Geof Ochs, President, and CEO of SYNC Performance.

“All of the hats and shirts are logoed with the STD motto, “Stay Drifty.” It’s a perfect message in times like these, where we have to remember to stay positive and hang loose no matter the circumstances. There’s enough negativity in the world. Who needs more of that!” remarked Chris Bivona, founder of Ski Town All-Stars.

3/4 warmup

Super product, warm, easy on and off. Fits small so you might want to go up a size.
Great for training, no need to strip down to skin suit.
Love them.

Great Product

I wear them everyday, as I used to cut into my liners and skisocks on a regular basis and got scared to cut open my calves. They fit well and also keep your calves warm and snow free when you decide to not put your suit above your boot in slalom.

Essential for any racer

Perfect for training and keeping the elements off. Lightweight and great fit. Essential piece of clothing to keep in your bag at all times.

Men's 8120 Insulated Pant

Great quality, warm, functional, & good looking. What more do you want? I love this pant.

Best Bag Ever!!

Ski racing is one of those sports where you are always carrying a lot of gear. With the Locker pack, you will never have to worry about trying to fit everything in. There will never be one of those mornings where you have to debate what gets brought to the hill and what gets left behind, so you will always be prepared. The intense zippers also make it, so you know everything is protected in there. It is definitely the best bag I have ever used!
