Sissi Kenwether, Skhoop Skirts
It all started with below zero temperatures, a happy dog, an old parka and a sewing machine. Skhoop founder Sissi Kenwether was taking her long morning walk through Are, Sweden with her dog Labbe. Sissi and Labbe meandered through their small mountain village, past the ski lifts and the town square, with each passing step Sissi found herself getting colder and colder. A bakery down the hill drew her in with the seductive smell of fresh baked bread. With a hot cup of coffee in hand and a frozen butt, Sissi felt like she was missing something from her wardrobe. Why did she wear a parka with a pair of jeans with long underwear? She needed something that could keep her bum and legs warm. After a cup of coffee, Sissi and Labbe ran home, Sissi had an idea! She grabbed her old parka from the basement, a pair of scissors and sat in front of her old sewing machine and went to work. A few hours later, the first down skirt saw the light of the day! The next morning Sissi and Labbe embarked on another cold morning walk. This time with a warm bum. The Original Skhoop Skirt was born. Learn more about Sissi and Skhoop Skirts.

Kelli Jones, NoSo Patches
Kelli Jones, founder and #girlboss came up with the idea for Noso Patches after she hopped a barbed wire fence hiking in Wyoming and snagged her brand-new Patagonia jacket. Instead of replacing the jacket or repairing it with tape, Kelli used her own heart shaped patch she cut from nylon. After numerous friends asked where they could get one, she decided to make Noso Patches available to everyone to help keep gear out of the landfill. Learn more about Kelli and NoSo Patches.

Kate Schade, Kate's Real Food
Long before Kate Schade became a business owner and whole foods advocate, she was a self-proclaimed ski bum. Tram Bars, Kate’s preliminary food source for on-the-go fun, were made on off-days in her kitchen. In line at 7:00 a.m., Kate would catch first box at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, ski all day, then grab a quick shower before slinging Italian food in the evenings. All the while, her Tram Bar pocket-fuel satiated any nourishment needs. Learn more about Kate and Kate’s Real Food!
