Well it is officially summer! We finally had some of that glorious sun and warmth in Anchorage over the weekend. We have been hiking, fishing, camping, cabin-tripping, and getting out on bikes non-stop for weeks now.
There's a lot going on!
Winning the US Small Business Administration Woman Owned Business of the Year Award for the Alaska District AND Alaska Public Media covering the story on the radio and online!
Getting recognized as a winner for our long sleeve base layer the Treeline Long Sleeve in Backpacker and Outside magazine in their Summer Gear Guide for Best Men's Hiking Tops. Shop the Treeline Long Sleeve or the Women's version our Rendezvous Ridge Long Sleeve.
We had a pop-up together with Wildhaven Wools at Willow+Luna boutique in Juneau, where friend and entrepreneur Erin designs and makes handbags, purses, fanny packs, card wallets and more. She works with soft Italian Leather and makes all of her bags right in her studio and store, downtown Juneau! If you missed the pop-up, fret not, we have a selection of Alpine Fit gear at her store for the time being for you to check out. Go feel the soft fabrics that try on our styles in person at Willow+Luna, 117 Seward Street, in downtown Juneau, Alaska!
I went on a family trip to beautiful Admiralty Island near Juneau, Alaska and spent the week enjoying some sun, water, fishing, hiking and paddling with the fam.
Since getting back we’ve been gearing up for some fun projects on the horizon including developing products, packing for events, and getting ready for more adventures. Jamie and I made our annual trip to Seward to camp, have a booth at the Seward 4th of July and Mount Marathon Festival and enjoy the great company of friends, vendors and outdoor adventurers in town for the festivities! Thank you so much for coming out and enjoying the festivities with us in the rain! It was an event to remember. Congrats to the runners (I saw quite a few Alpine Fit headbands and tank tops in the race!).
