You may have seen our special edition Kolapore Wilderness Trails 50th Anniversary toques out on the trails. Our first order of 101 toques sold out so quickly that we've made a second smaller order that we expect to arrive by Dec. 10. The manufacturer knows we want to mail them to purchasers in time for Christmas, and they would make a great gift - just sayin'. :)
We've posted photos below, including an inside view.
The hats were made by Sauce, a U.S. company founded by former Canadian national team cross country skier Shayla Swanson to support her racing career. Our anniversary toque is a custom version of their Fleece N' Swift model, a midweight hat with fleece lining on the bottom and a more breathable upper - light enough for exercise but warm enough for the Kolapore trails on most winter days. The design is by artist Sarah Angst, who gave special permission for us to modify her original colours.
We're selling the toques for $40 (no tax) and all profits will go toward trail maintenance.
If you'd like to reserve a toque, please fill out this order form to let us know. Payment is via e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred) or you can arrange to give cash to a Kolapore Trails representative.
Pickup is available in the Collingwood/Blue Mountains area or in Caledon at no extra charge. If you would like your toque shipped, please include your full mailing address with postal code in your email and include an extra $4 per toque with your payment, i.e. $44 for 1 toque, $88 for 2 toques, etc.
It will be a busy time when the toques arrive so if you're OK with sending your payment now, it will save a step for our volunteers later on.
We look forward to seeing anniversary toques in the woods this winter!
