Roxy Biotherm

You spend 100 days a year riding powder, chairlifts, and simply enjoying everything that winter offers. And what do you have to show for it? Well, besides a sweet goggle tan, burly quads, and a permanently affixed “powder grin?” Chances are you’ve probably got some dry, cracked skin to go along with that wicked goggle tan that you like to show off so much. All the more reason to check out a new offering in the form of Roxy Biotherm winter clothing.

For the first time ever, thanks to Roxy and Biotherm, now you can get all the great parts of winter you already love, while still keeping your face moisturized and happy. That’s because Roxy has added Biotherm moisturizing elements to its line of skiwear for the upcoming season.

If you’re into skiing or riding, you likely know Roxy as a manufacturer or great women’s clothing and equipment. And, if you like keeping your face moisturized, you likely know Biotherm as a leader in that industry as well. So, what could they be doing together, you ask? Together they’ve created a line of winter gear and clothing that will change the way your face thinks about winter.

Now, before you go picturing a scarf smeared with goopy face cream, rest assured that it’s much more cleverly done than that. It starts with a blend of shea butter and apricot oil that is combined with an anti-irritation Marine-Christe extract. A process called microencapsulation is then used to encase those hydrating substances in miniature capsules. The microscopic capsules are then inserted into the fabric.

Microcapsule -> Fabric Insertion -> Final Product

 

Once this process is complete, it’s time for the clothing to find its home, you. Luckily, from your side of things as the consumer, there’s really not much going on that changes. You’re still getting a comfortable, functional piece of skiwear to help you enjoy the winter. The difference comes when you start to wear the garment. As the infused fabric comes in contact with the skin, the micro particles break, progressively releasing their formula.

The hydrating formula does a few things at this point. The first thing it does is to create a protective layer over your skin, helping to shield it from the effects of the dry, cold winds that tend to blow when you’re out on the slopes. Secondly, this protective layer actually soaks into your skin, hydrating it the same way that applying moisturizer does normally, except this time it’s doing it while you’re skiing. Hard to beat that, huh?

Nothing says “winter’s right around the corner” like Granite Chief’s annual Jr. Ski Lease Days! This year our Jr. Ski Lease Days fall on the weekend of October 22nd and 23rd, just in time for that November snowfall. This is the best opportunity to get your youngsters geared up and ready to hit the slopes.

ski service card

For a short time each year Granite Chief offers the Ski Service Card, affording members a 50% discount on all ski, boot, and binding services.  Ski Service members also have an edge on demo-ing and previewing the latest ski and boot technology developments before the products are released to the public.  Our Demo Day & Pig Roast, a member exclusive, is an end of the season celebration for skiers looking to test and purchase next season’s ski equipment.

While the Granite Chief Ski Service Card doesn’t include parts, such as buckles and more, cannot be used toward rentals, merchandise, or gift cards, your purchase price is always guaranteed.  Example: If you purchase a $200 SSC for $100.  At the end of the season you only used $80 worth, we will carry over the $20 you paid to the next ski season.

Granite Chief, with over one thousand Ski Service Card members is the leader in ski and boot services. Our ski tuning, boot fitting, and repair facility has a deep rooted legacy dating back to 1976, the first of its kind at Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley. The Chief was the first in the industry to implement factory level base prep, structure, and edge beveling. Our team of boot fitters, headed up Gunner Wolf, took fitting to a status of art and performance. Granite Chief s ski presses, used by ski manufacturers, allows us to reconstruct edge sections, delaminations, and core shots. Our proprietary Laser Guided Stance Alignment system provides predictable results, eliminating the inconsistencies of the outdated plumb-bob method.
