Arc'teryx, a Canadian based outerwear company, has signed Pro Skier Austin Ross to their team of riders for the 2011-12 season.
Online PR News – 09-October-2011 – – Phoenix, AZ The partnership between Arc'teryx and Ross is the fusion of 2 souls made for exploring the rugged mountains of British Columbia. Raised in the Pemberton Valley of British Columbia, Canada, Austin Ross has been exploring the mountains and backcountry of Canada his entire life. Arc'teryx prides itself on being an innovative outerwear production company with products built to last. The Arc'teryx design teams challenge assumptions, and in this way, performance and materials are continually driven forward, in some cases, becoming industry standards.
"I’m stoked to announce that Arc’teryx has a new local boy on the team. Born, raised and living in Pemberton, Austin Ross has joined the Arc’teryx team for the coming winter season. Being a seasoned local backcountry ripper and close to Arc’teryx headquarters in North Vancouver, BC he’s a perfect addition. I’m looking forward to working with Austin while he develops his ski career in the years to come.", stated Laura Fergusson, when asked about Arc'teryx signing Austin to the Team Roster ( http://austinross.ca ).
Summer marks the 20th Anniversary of Arc'teryx. Their company aim remains the same as the day the company was founded: to find solutions that harmonize activity with design and produce the best possible product. When asked about the new partnership, Austin said, "I couldn't be more excited to team up with Arc'teryx this season! They make high end technical gear that's durable and stylish. I'm so proud to represent a brand that was conceived, designed and tested ( http://austinross.ca )in the Sea To Sky Corridor, just like me!"
