The Director's Invitational Ski Classic (DISC), for those of you who don't know, is a fun three-day invitational ski race that raises money for charity. This year's benefactor - the US Ski & Snowboard Team Foundation (USSA).
There was a ton of fun to be had at this year's event as the ladies of the US Ski Team (above), showed of their skills both on the slopes and on the dance floor! The Krimson Klover team is passionate about knitwear, but we're also eager to give back and support the people and organizations that promote the sport we love - skiing!
Teams of 8 to 10 skiers, including novice to experts as well as legends and Pros (ex-World Cup and Olympians) compete head-to-head against others of the same skill level in a dual GS format race. The team with the most points is awarded the top spot.
But before race day, the teams had to be determined. The Pros, which consisted of some serious female athletes, had to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Let the games begin!
In no particular order, Amanda McDonald, Jess Kelley, Laura Littman, Andra Nedelcu, Julia Littman, Anastasia Skryabina, Libby Ludlow, Keeley Kelleher, and Megan McJames take their places on the auction block.
All of these lovely ladies are clad in Krimson Klover's Fall '15 Slope Style Collection. Krimson Klover donated $2500 worth of prizes for the race winners and each attendee received sweet deals on future Krimson Klover purchases.
There's no better way to showcase this collection of vintage inspired knitwear than to let the professionals strut their stuff. They wore it well! Just check out these beautiful hand-painted base layers.
Jess Kelley is wearing the beautiful Apres-Ski Sleigh Ride Sweater in the finest merino wool.

Nice hustle! Oh, and nice sweater!
Even the guys got in on the fashion show...we're guessing that's his best ski-bunny face.
We agree Jilyne, Krimson Klover will stick to women's wear for now.
Sorry buddy, let's leave the modeling to the ladies!
And to celebrate the beginning of some good, clean, downhill fun....Shotski!
It was a full weekend of loud dance parties, silent auctions, good friends and great athletes. We are proud to be a sponsor of these amazing women and the Director's Cup 2015. A big thanks to Deb Doyle from Aspen Eventworks for making this event happen and a hats off to Pat Smith at On Target PR for connecting Krimson Klover with this wonderful group of ski enthusiasts.
