San Luis Obispo, Calif. â€“ Hot Chillys, maker of premium base layers, proudly announces its sponsorship of the world-renowned mountaineers Apa and Lhakpa Sherpa. Known collectively as the SuperSherpas, Apa Sherpa has summited Mt. Everest a record, 18 times; and Lhapka Sherpa holds the world-record Everest ascent time. Hot Chillys commends their top-tier athleticism and altruistic humanitarian efforts on behalf of the children of Nepal.
Hot Chillys is a multi-textured company that takes having a good time as seriously as it takes designing the industry-leading performance wear. It has a longstanding commitment to supporting amateur athletes who embody that spirit and dedication.
The SuperSherpas bring a new dimension to the Hot Chillys sponsorship program. They are widely recognized as two of the top mountaineers in the world. Equal to their athletic achievement and quest for adventure is their dedication to promoting conscientious mountaineering and social activism. Apa and Lhapka are tirelessly committed to providing educational infrastructure and opportunities to the children of Nepal.
Apa Sherpa wore Hot Chillys Micro-Elite Chamois on his world-record eighteenth ascent of Mt. Everest on May 22, 2008. He and Lhapka will promote the brand during their public appearances across the United States. More importantly, they will wear Hot Chillys when they are out doing what they love to do: climbing the world’s biggest mountains.
