L.L. Bean Hitting the Slopes

Share this content:
In a move intended to help expand its presence in the outerwear market, L.L. Bean will be the official outerwear supplier to eight ski resorts starting this fall, the Freeport, ME-based cataloger reported yesterday.


The partnership with American Skiing Co. -- which operates Killington, Steamboat, Mount Snow and other snowboard and skiing resorts -- is one of a series of initiatives meant to increase the exposure of L.L. Bean outerwear in the alpine ski and snowboard market, according to a company statement.


"We have survey data that ranks L.L. Bean No. 1 among outerwear retailers in unaided consumer awareness. That's a foundation we can build on," L.L. Bean outerwear vice president/merchandising manager Greg Houser said in the statement.


L.L. Bean's product developers and designers are working with ASC staff members to develop a complete outerwear line for all on-snow resort employees. A version of the line will be available to consumers this fall as part of L.L. Bean's new Gore-Tex/Primaloft Mountain Pro Series.
