Dale of Norway developed the first ski sweater for the Norwegian national team in 1956 and has collaborated closely with the team for every Winter Olympic game and World Championship ever since. It is important that the team members are comfortable in their sweaters as they move from the slopes to press conferences and official events â€“ and our development teams works hard every year to perfect the Dale of Norway ski sweater.
Norwegians are said to be born with â€œskis on their feet.â€ During long winters with snow, skiing is not only a favored sport but also a necessity in order to get around. Therefore, it is no surprise that skiing is the national sport in Norway and ski athletes are true heroes.
The official Olympic and World Championship sweaters have made Dale of Norway synonymous with skiing all over the world. They are mostly named after location of the event, for example, Lillehammer, Calgary and Sochi. These design are not only popular during the events but for many years after, often becoming collectorsâ€™ items.
