Touring the Alps with Scream Team Guide Geoff Unger
This month we check in with Scream Team athlete Geoff Unger, who undoubtedly leads a life filled with far more Screamer Moments than any of us back here at the office. A native of Seattle, Geoff is one of the most well trained and highly certified (IFMGA/UIAGM) mountain guides in the country. He’s a vital part of the Scream Team who has helped test our hats in some of the most extreme, and picturesque, places in the world. We caught up with Geoff after leading yet another ski tour through the Alps, this time bringing along his own father for a remarkable journey beginning in Chamonix and culminating in Zermatt.
Screams from the President - Tradeshow Recap & What’s Hot in Hats
By Jan Burkholder, Screamer President
The 2011 tradeshow season has disappeared in our rear view mirror and we’re excited to share that our sales are trending up almost 30%! Highlighted by the SIA, Outdoor retailer, and ISPO this was our 19th year and the experience can be summed up in one word: TRAPPERS. Classic Trapper hats were the hot item to be had this winter season and Screamer has already nailed it with some of the best styles. This was followed by a push for our “S3” Super Soft Fleece neck warmers because of the ultimate softness, quality, durability and price!
