WEST END, NC – Polarmax and the National Ski Patrol have joined forces to provide patrollers access to the best technical base layer garments available on the market. Polarmax’s 25 years of technical base layer design and manufacturing in the ski industry means Polarmax understands varying conditions and the hard work that goes into being a patroller in the mountains, day in and day out.

Polarmax knows what patrollers need most:

Superior wicking



Quick drying


•Non-shrink qualities

•Easy wash and wear care

Made in the USA

“We are really excited to partner with Polarmax as the official base layer supplier of the National Ski Patrol,” said Tim White, NSP Director. “Polarmax has been making quality base layers since way back when I started skiing, and they understand the needs of those who work outside in the worst conditions.” White continued, “I’ve not come across a base layer that performs better under varying conditions and we’re proud to be able to offer Polarmax base layers to our patrollers, making every effort to ensure their comfort and safety on the job.”

All Polarmax products feature their proprietary Acclimate® Dry to keep you dry and warm during high and low output cold weather activities, and the Polarmax system is specifically designed to allow you to select base layers that accurately match your level of activity and conditions. Since all Polarmax garments are created and produced within a 15-mile radius in North Carolina, your base layer now has an extremely tiny carbon footprint.

“The NSP is a perfect match for Polarmax,” echoed Roger Maxey, National Sales Director for Polarmax. “The heart and soul of the NSP matches the heart and soul of Polarmax. We design our products with the end user in mind. We’re thinking of those who go out day after day in an effort to keep people safe, in what can be the craziest of conditions.” Maxey continued, “What we provide for these dedicated professionals is performance, fit, feel, longevity and anti-odor.” Polarmax retailers can be found online at, and NSP Members can get great special Pro Patroller pricing on Polarmax gear on the NSP Pro Page under Member Services or the NSP Winter Catalog.
