This week, SCARPA North America won its ninth award for its Freedom SL freeride ski boot, with an Editor’s Choice from Backpacker Magazine. In celebration of this great recognition here is a list of nine completely random facts that feature this momentous number. While those suffering from a fear of odd numbers, an illness referred to as dispar numerophobia, may not be too excited by this, the number nine has more going for it than many would think. In addition to being the largest single digit and an integral member of our numerical system, the number also carries significant meaning among many cultures. Specifically, the Chinese associate the number with the Chinese dragon, a symbol of magic and power. Now, on to the random facts.
