Steamboat Springs, Co., November 2, 2011 – This season’s sales are up again for Chaos Headwear and CTR- Chaos Thermal Regulation. Nationwide grassroots programs prove to be a large part of the solution. With Chris Anthony as the spokesperson, a new pro-snow team, and twelve event programs, Chaos Headwear is positioned for a year of great snow and warmer heads.
The twelve events nationwide allow the brand to be invested locally and build deeper retail relations regionally. The events focus on all snow sports including, downhill skiing, snowboarding, tele-mark, with snow camps for kids, and youth initiative programs. These Partnerships are far reaching and contribute to Iraq and Afghanistan Vail veteran ski programs — to year-round outreach groups that teach outdoor sports to kids with less- advantages. Below are all the programs in detail.
Chris Anthony is the official headwear spokesperson; with over 60 events for Warren Miller Films, he hosts world-wide extreme ski terrain trips, and leads the Youth Marketing Initiative LLC for programs seeking financial assistance and exposure. The Chaos snow team includes five members. The NEW PRO Team members this year include: Chloe Banning and Colin Spencer in Snowboard and Penn Lukens in Skier Cross/Freeski. http://www.chaosheadwear.com
