“One cold snowy winter morning in 1999 in Åre, Sweden, Sissi Kewenter was getting ready to take her dog for a walk. Putting on traditional snow pants seemed like a nuisance at the time and the further away from the house she walked, the colder she got. She wondered if there could be an easier way to keep her bottom warm? How about an insulated skirt that could be easily put on and taken off via a two-way zipper? Sissi raced back home to design the Original Skirt. She started making these skirts for friends and family and before she knew it, the demand for her skirts had taken off and SKHOOP was born.” - Skhoop
In 2007, in the garage of her house, Osa Detrick, Sissi’s college roommate and friend took a chance, and introduced the brand to Alaska, and eventually the entire United States. Skhoop has since taken off, and designed a variety of warm, fun, and absolutely fabulous clothes to enjoy the outdoors.
Skhoop was one of my very first supporters when racing World Cup was just a “dream”. They appreciate the value of “building from scratch”, and have supported me all the way to the peak of my career. If you are wondering what one of my favorite “secret’s to success is”…. look no further than “The Sadie” vest. My bum has some of the strongest muscles in my body, so why not keep it warm?
