A Mountain Mama Brand Ambassador Welcomes Bundle of Joy

Mountain Mama brand ambassador, Marni Yamada, welcomes a baby boy.

ONTARIO, Calif., (August 24, 2011) – Marni Yamada, a former Team USA Snowboardcross racer and brand ambassador for Mountain Mama, is proud to announce the arrival of her baby boy.

Marni welcomed son, Asa, on July 13, 2011. With competitive side at rest, Marni switched focus to a new career path including being a doula, yoga instructor and product tester for Mountain Mama's new yoga collection. And now she is poised to take on her most important role, Mom.

“I have conquered some of the most incredible moguls, waves and spines during my competitive days with Snowboard cross, and have helped others achieve physical and mental goals through Yoga, and now look forward to the new adventures I will embark upon during my journey through motherhood,” Marni commented. “Mountain Mama's line of technical apparel have kept me cool and dry while I maintained my passion for outdoor adventure throughout my pregnancy, and they have promise to continue to be a favorite in my closet through post-maternity and beyond.”

Mountain Mama offers an award-winning collection of clothes that make it possible for expecting women to continue to play throughout pregnancy without sacrificing the desire for stylish and high-performing apparel. A combination of innovative designs with technical fabrics yields high-quality apparel that moms can rely on throughout the many prenatal stages, as well as post partum and beyond.

The line's recognition started with active apparel for pregnant women who hike, swim and enjoy the outdoors. Now, expanding on that foundation, Mountain Mama is preparing to release running and yoga wear for Spring 2012.

Designs employ Polartec® fabrics that comply with the independent bluesign® environmental standard or plant-based fabrics such as Tencel, Bamboo or Modal whenever possible.
