Northfield, Vermont (SNEWS) January 7, 2013 – Darn Tough Vermont, American manufacturer of the fastest growing collection of outdoor performance socks in the USA, has been named the official sock of Stowe, Vermont's acclaimed Trapp Family Lodge. For 2014, all Trapp Family Lodge employees will be wearing a variety of Darn Tough Vermont socks, including the Nordic Micro Crew, Function 5, Mountaineering, and Boot socks.

With a shared appreciation for Nordic skiing sports and an unrivaled commitment to quality, both Darn Tough Vermont and the Trapp Family Lodge are recognized as leading brands within the Nordic industry.

The Trapp Family Lodge is dedicated to creating an environment that showcases the sport of Nordic skiing in all its disciplines – skate, classic and backcountry,” explains Kristina von Trapp of the Trapp Family Lodge.

“Darn Tough is equally as passionate about promoting the Nordic lifestyle, making this partnership a natural fit.”

Rich in Nordic tradition, the Trapp Family Lodge is a world-class resort renowned for being the first full service cross-country ski center in America. With 100km of backcountry trails and 60km of groomed trails, the Lodge’s Nordic Center is the perfect home for Darn Tough, manufacturer of the industry’s premier Nordic sock.

“The Trapp Family Lodge has the most advanced Nordic Center in the US and Darn Tough makes the highest quality Nordic socks on the market,” says Ric Cabot, President and CEO of Darn Tough Vermont.

“Working alongside another Vermont family establishment that is immersed within Nordic sports and represents the best in its category is a great opportunity for both brands. It’s as simple at that.”

Made with fine gauge Merino wool and high-density True-Seamless™ knitting technology, Darn Tough Vermont socks aggressively wick moisture to keep feet dry, temperature regulated and comfortable. Designed for speed and comfort, their Nordic Micro Crew socks are ideal for any winter excursion. Unconditionally guaranteed for life, each Darn Tough Vermont sock is designed, manufactured and tested in Northfield, Vermont for unrivaled comfort, fit and durability.
