Winter’s back and it’s never been a better time to join the Armada in the hunt for powder, fresh lines, park laps, and the deep urban features. Based out of Park City, Utah Armada has been on the scene since 2002 and have worked to build one of the most dominant brands in the freestyle ski industry. They pride themselves on the fact they are a rider driven company with a number of owner/riders who helped get them off the ground and into the spotlight. A number of their owner riders are household names in the freestyle ski realm including the likes of Tanner Hall, the late JP Auclair, JF Cusson, Torin Yater-Wallace, and Henrik Harlaut. Beginning with only two freestyle skis in the line, the company has expanded to include everything from touring skis to all mountain and extra wide powder happy setups. They have also very successfully expanded into the outerwear sector and continue to produce some of the best looking gear available today.
Armada has long been credited with breathing some youthful life into the freestyle ski scene, and increasing young men and women’s participation in the sport. Now boasting an incredibly diverse line up of products Armada continues to take the sport to new heights with a real rider driven feel and backing it’s hard to go wrong when you’re stepping into a brand new pair of Armada ski’s. Mount Everest has carried Armada skis and outerwear for years and looks forward to sharing the 2016 line with our customers throughout the nation.
