9 Random 9-Related Facts Inspired by the Freedom SL’s 9 Media Awards

Oct. 18th 2013

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.

SCARPA Maestrale, TX Pro win Backcountry Mag 2011 Editor’s Choice Award

Aug. 25th 2011


Here in the more northern parts of the country, there are many signs that – despite it still being summer – ski season is most decidedly on the way. The nights are getting cooler. Bars conversations inevitably turn to what gear you should be on this season. And the ski mags’ gear guides are starting to show up in mailboxes.

This week, Backcountry Magazine’s first issue, its annual gear guide, is out, and SCARPA boots won two 2011 Editor’s Choice Awards, the Maestrale in alpine-touring and the Terminator X Pro, also known as the TX Pro, in telemark.

You can read their take in the magazine, but suffice to say they liked what they saw. What’s the rest of the the story?

Backcountry Mag gives SCARPA four Editor’s Choice Awards

Sep. 8th 2010

Backcountry Magazine’s first issue of the year, its annual gear guide, just came out, and the folks over here at SCARPA were psyched to be the recipients of four Editor’s Choice Awards for ski boots in the Fall 2010 collection – more awards than any other single boot manufacturer.

Boots that won awards include two ski boots in the freeride/alpine-touring collection, the Mobe, a tech-compatible, lightweight AT boot with serious downhill chops (see photo), as well as the Shaka, a women’s AT boot that’ll do it all – touring to area skiing.
