Well, another slow start to the winter in Boax Clothing HQ, Chamonix. Maybe the earliest we’ve skied in a few years (8th November) but the snow really took its time to hit properly. And then just when we needed it the most, the powder has arrived! Not the safest conditions for a lot of Chamonix’s terrain at the moment but we’ve still had some of the best powder days of our lives in the last week or so.
So, to celebrate it’s sale time. Help yourself to 20% off all items in the Boax Clothing store now. That’s handmade custom beanies from just £19.20, machine-knitted beanies from £12.25, men’s & women’s t-shirts at £17.60 and hoodies just £32.00.
Ski smart and play safe in the new snow everyone! Keep up to date with Chamonix conditions on Boax founder Lorne Cameron‘s personal blog.

Centrepoint UK‘s SLEEP OUT event took place at the start of the month and Boax Clothing were proud to supply them with 600 promotional beanies. After supplying a small batch of beanies to Centrepoint in 2012 we were excited to show them the new options for fully customised branded beanies and worked out a design based on their input.
The SLEEP OUT event saw 1200 people sleep outdoors in 4 urban venues across the UK to raise awareness of the realities facing young homeless people while sleeping rough. Thanks to some involvement from various celebrities, a lot of hard work from the organisers, and (hopefully) the promotional items supplied by us and others £300,000 was raised for the cause. Good work everyone! See the Guardian’s video coverage of the event here.
Centrepoint is a London-based charity which focuses on providing young homeless people with housing, health and education support.

We’re proud to announce that Boax Clothing is supplying local Chamonix startup brand NIVOSE GEAR with custom branded beanies as part of their Kickstarter launch campaign. Their product range focuses on bringing mitts back into popularity on the mountain; they’re stacked with features and the production models we checked out are top quality.
The Nivose beanies are a standard baggy-fit beanie with the Nivose logo woven into the outside, with an option to wear it with a turn-up to reveal the Nivose text logo. Just a taste of what is possible with our new customisation options for branded beanie batches.

Once again, Boax Clothing‘s Austrian wonderkid Mario Wanger had an amazing winter last year and here’s his full season segment to prove it, with a nice mix of park, jibs, powder kickers and natural features.
Good work Mario; we’re looking forward to the next one!
Here we go, a brand new product for winter 13/14 in very limited numbers by popular request. We’ve been experimenting with neckwarmers for a while but have finally been able to make the ideal product after teaming up with some local friends and sourcing some great fabrics.
Made with love right here in Chamonix, our new neckwarmers employ the finest tech fabrics to keep you warm and dry on the hill. Using a wind and water-resistant outer layer and microfleece lining, they’re low-bulk but built to perform. A simple velcro fastening at the rear means one-size-fits-all and there’s a mouth vent built in to ensure easy breathing when the windchill kicks in and you need full facial protection. But keep it classy kids; you’ll look a right fanny cruising around the hill with your face covered if it’s a warm sunny day!
So take a look at the initial range of limited colours available in the updated headwear section of the Boax Clothing store now.
Here it is, the final episode of Boax team rider Mario Wanger’s web series, “Boyz N Toyz”. This episode, filmed Mayrhofen, Kitzsteinhorn and Sölden sees the boys hit some mighty large kickers with top-notch filming as always, plus some boobs for good measure.
Enjoy, and look out for more episodes dropping next winter.
