Our vision for Powder Point Sports began with a simple conversation between siblings (David and Christy) at a downtown Boston restaurant in the winter of 2013. The initial concept was simple – bring innovative designs and performance to a ski pant industry dominated by single color pants. For the men’s line, the idea was inspired by the 80’s mogul pants that seem all but extinct today. The colors and styles we create show a passion for skiing that can be found in bumps, parks, trees, and on fresh corduroy. For the women’s line, a pant that transitions from the slopes to mountainside apres ski was the driver for a soft shell, breathable fabric and bold tuxedo stripe.
In order to bring our dream to fruition, we needed to get our product seen by the fun-loving people who agree that skiing and snowboarding are the greatest sports on earth. So it was decided, we would skip work every day, and devote our time to skiing, so the world could see the next generation of snow apparel designs. It was a grueling job that involved searching for powder stashes, skiing endless mogul fields, and cruising in the wide open bowls, but we are committed to bringing you the best in performance and style.
My parents met in the birthplace of skiing, St. Anton, Austria. In the early 70s, they started making their own ski pants – a tradition they passed down to me. Skiing has always been a part of my DNA and Powder Point Sports allows me to combine family, fun and fashion in a career centered around the greatest sport on earth!

My very first ski suit was a puffy hot pink onesie with embroidered neon sprinkles. It was THE ideal outfit for a trendsetting 5 year old (plus it was quite visible on a blizzardry CO ski day). Whether skiing Sierra cement or Rocky Mountain champagne powder, looking good and feeling confident about the performance of my ski gear has always been important to me. Though my ski days are less about chasing storms, and more about sippin’ lodge cocoa (mom of 2); there’s still plenty of time left for blue bird days!
