CHAOS Heads into Winter with Events and Non-Profits
Regional events further brand’s growth and build local support
Steamboat Springs, Co., November 26th, 2014. Sales are again on the rise for Chaos Headwear and CTR-Chaos Thermal Regulation. In the upcoming season, Chaos will again utilize its effective formula of nationwide grassroots programs to build on that success. With a new pro-snow team, Chris Anthony as the spokesperson, and eight event programs, Chaos Headwear is ideally positioned for a year of fresh pow and warm heads.
With US headquarters in Steamboat Springs, pro-snow team includes Chaos veterans, Chris Anthony, with Suzanne Graham, and Colin Spencer as ambassadors. Chaos’ support will help these athletes reach their winter competition goals in style.
Expert skier and longtime Chaos spokesperson, Chris Anthony of Anthony Adventures, will guide the team to another successful season. With over 60 events for Warren Miller Films under his belt, Anthony hosts world-wide extreme ski terrain trips and leads the Youth Initiative Project, which arose from his years of traveling and living the dream as both a pro skier and extreme ski guide and now provides outdoor opportunities for kids that otherwise would never have the chance to pursue their own dreams. Anthony and the entire pro-snow team will continue to inspire the Chaos community through new event programming and nationwide representation within the ski and outdoors industries.
