DELTA, B.C. (September 14, 2009) – Visitors to several of North America’s top winter resorts will experience a variety of conditions, terrains and amenities yet one thing will remain consistent – they’ll see Helly Hansen performance apparel on a wide range of mountain employees.

Helly Hansen embarked on a dedicated uniform-development initiative in 2006 that tied together its storied work wear, sportswear and performance apparel collections. The program provides resorts with a single-brand solution for every segment of operations,from mechanics to ski patrollers.

During the past three years, numerous resorts, including Aspen/Snowmass, Copper Mountain, Killington, Hunter, Durango and the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies selected Helly Hansen as their exclusive uniform partner. In 2009, 13 more resorts, including Squaw Valley USA, Kirkwood, Mt. Baker, Taos and Smuggler’s Notch; and Seattle-based, international high-alpine guiding service Mountain Madness established their own custom uniform programs with the Norwegian-based manufacturer.

“Helly Hansen has designed apparel for survival, work and sport for more than 134

years,” said Gary Davis, general manger for Helly Hansen’s North American operations. “This experience gives us a unique insight into the uniform business, allowing us to design and manufacture apparel that can withstand the abusive conditions under which a mountain professional’s gear is subjected throughout multiple seasons. Uniforms are a natural extension of what we have been doing for generations and we have great expectations for the continued growth of the program.”

Helly Hansen will produce more than 17,000 uniform pieces for its customers this

season.

Founded in Moss, Norway, in 1877, Helly Hansen is the world’s most experienced

performance apparel brand. The company invented the first supple waterproof fabrics

more than 130 years ago, created the first fleece fabrics in the 1960s and introduced the first technical base layers made with LIFA Stay Dry Technology in the 1970s. Today,

Helly Hansen’s outerwear, base layers, sportswear and footwear for winter, outdoor and

water sports are sold in more than 40 countries.
