On November 17, 2016, from 6pm to 8pm, premium alpine sportswear company Alps & Meters announced the continuation of their Designed by Tradition event series with the presentation of author Robert Cocuzzo’s new book Tracking the Wild Coomba alongside the launch of their FW16 Forged Performance Collection. Inspired by the powerful history and the spirited traditions of skiing and alpine sport, Alps & Meters’ Designed by Tradition event series aims to convey these ideas by spotlighting local retail partners and alpinist heroes, including author and brand alpinist Robert Cocuzzo. This event was held at The VOCAL NYC Showroom where drinks and light refreshments were graciously served.


Alps & Meters’ inspiration is drawn from the past, from places, and from individuals whose values reflect a passionate appreciation for nostalgic mountain experiences and memories. This sentiment is reflected in Robert Cocuzzo’s new book Tracking the Wild Coomba, in which Cocuzzo takes us on a journey of skiing legend Doug Coombs’ life on the mountain and beyond. Event attendees will be able to get an exclusive inside look into how the skier Doug Coombs made such a profound mark on adventure skiers around the world with an insightful talk provided by author Robert Cocuzzo and an intimate meet and greet with Louis Joseph, Founder of Alps & Meters. Guests will also enjoy cocktails and light refreshments while perusing goods from the newly launched Alps & Meters FW16 Forged Performance Collection.


Based on the belief that there is an enduring truth embedded within the beauty of alpine sport, the Designed by Tradition event series is intended to draw together generations of alpine enthusiasts and newcomers in order to learn more about and continue to share the lasting traditions of mountain life and alpine sport.
