Two distinct lines are offered: the unlined Nordic collection and the fleece-lined Alpine collection.  Skida uses fabrics that are high performance poly-micro blends, medium weight fleece-linings, and Polartec® micro-fleece linings.

“This is a very exciting time for Skida as the brand continues to grow in sales and interest,” commented Corinne Prevot, found and owner of Skida Headwear & Accessories.  “We are excited to work with Killoran Communications who will help increase our visibility with potential dealers and consumers.”

As a ski racer, Prevot first started making and selling Skida hats and accessories in 2008 to fellow Alpine and Nordic teammates and racers while attending Burke Mountain Academy and Middlebury College, both located in Vermont. With continued growth and demand for the colorful, playful hats and accessories, Prevot moved production to Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. In 2013, Prevot opened Skida company headquarters in Burlington, Vermont’s South End Arts District.
