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.
Skiing has always been a part of my DNA. At five years old, I joined a racing team, but the real competition was keeping up with my sister. For the first 18 years of my life, I was not able to catch her, so I enrolled at the University of Colorado to level the playing field. Jobs in accounting and law reminded me that there is more to life than paperwork and billable hours. Powder Point Sports has allowed me to combine family, fun and fashion in a career centered around the greatest sport on earth.

My parents met in the birthplace of skiing, St. Anton, Austria. My Father’s version of the story details his amazing ability to do the twist in ski boots, which got him noticed by my Mother. Unlike ski pants from previous generations, today’s styles don’t have a flattering fit that transition from the slopes to après ski. Therefore, we have created a pair of ski pants that will help turn heads in the bar, even if you haven’t mastered the twist.
