The reason? Simple: the Swedish company’s North American headquarters sit at the base of Aspen Highlands, resulting in widespread local distribution. With POC in eleven Aspen and Snowmass ski shops, it’s tough to find a store that doesn’t carry the brand. And that’s good news for the Roaring Fork Valley noggin.
