You know...For kids! (Super Hero Cape Content)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

We get a lot of gear to test most is ski related some is questionably on the fringe...thankfully these capes had no fringe. Is there an age limit to who gets to wear a cape while skiing? NIX...a limit to who gets to wear a cape at ANY time? NO! The only limit it for someone young at heart (and on Holloween and end of the ski season events) and since we were at end of the season events, we decided to don the capes and the hell with Edna Moles...YES CAPES!!

No CAPES? Sorry Edna. 

 

If the cape fits...wear it.

First day riding a chair solo..how did he do it? Cape induced confidence.

 

Quick, quick like bunny... a CAPED bunny

YOLO..with capes

Heading up the Mollie Hogan

Without capes, "Groomer 8's" could not be made under the Mollie Hogan, oh the pressure to perform under the lift.

My 4 year old would love that. How does it attach around the neck (is it Velcro)? Any issues with snagging? What happens if it does? Any issues of pulling or choking / does it break away?

Thanks

There is a slip closure on the string that is designed to let the string slip out in a tricky situation. 
 
See this info on their home page.

That was great!. Something about wearing a cape that makes you feel invincible. It's amazing how stoked little kids get when they see you ripping around the mountain with capes on. We have a small group of friends (ok,15 or so) where we dress up as SUPERHERO's once a year and shred. Fun times and even better seeing the excitement on a kids face not to mention the scene at the apres at the end of the day!

 

Yeah, wearing a Cape, RULES!

 

Here's a few shots of our day this season

Cool!

Cool, never would have been suggested in the rope tow days regardless of method of attachment.  I could see a problem of mid station departure when other chair occupant is going all the way up and accidentally sitting on the cape, but as long as there is some reliable release mechanism should be fine..

God, that looks like it hurts.

We've progressed from uncool gapers to over-the-top-cool-capers?

 

I'm okay with that.
