Skida Sport

Winter Outdoor Accessories

Hat Trick

Student entrepreneur Corinne Prevot turned a passion for skiing into a business. Uninspired by the fashion options for cross-country skiers, she started designing and making her own hats -- first for herself, then for family, friends and fellow skiers. Demand snowballed from there, and today Corinne creates a range of hats and neckwarmers in distinctive, energetic patterns.

Skida’s Nordic Hat is made from an unlined,
lightweight fabric that’s moisture-wicking so your head stays dry. It’s ideal for skiing, running, skating, and other outdoor activities. Skida’s insulated hats are lined with a layer of soft fleece and the neckwarmers are lined with lightweight microfibre, for protection from the harshest winter cold.

Today Corinne works with a network of seamstresses in the Newport, Vermont area, which was once a hotspot for apparel making, to keep up with demand for Skida’s spirited hats and cold weather accessories. Keeping the sewing work local is a priority for Corinne, who has big plans for her growing business and budding social entrepreneurship.

Grommet Launch Conversation

  • Corinne

    Hi Everyone! It's so exciting that the Daily Grommet has chosen Skida hats and accessories as its Daily Grommet. Its true that I started Skida while in high school; as a cross country ski racer in Vermont I wanted to sport a hat that was a little more fun and colorful. Now Skida offers a whole product line that will you keep you colorful and warm whether you are on the slopes, on the trail or cruising town. I am happy to share with you today the colorful fun created by Skida. I am still in school and am studying abroad this fall and am on the opposite side of the world today, so my Mom, Margie, will be available today to answer any questions.

    Can you tell us a bit more about the fabrics you use? Are the hats stretchy? Do they come in different sizes?

  • Margie
    11/1/2011 1:38 PM

    @Wendy: Hi Wendy, The fabric we use a 4 way stretch and are made of a blend of nylon/poly/spandex. So yes, they are stretchy. The hats come in s/m size which fits most women.

    @Elizabeth Varner: You can find detailed information about a Grommet under its video but above the story on a tab called 'Details'. It is easy to miss and so I wanted to point it out.

    The Nordic hats are not lined. The neck warmers and fleece lined hat are lined with Polartec fleece.

    @Elizabeth Varner: Hi Elizabeth, The neckwarmers are lined with Polartec 100 micro fleece. The hats are lined with a slightly heavier weight fleece.

    @Elizabeth: It closes with a 3" strip of Velcro to give you more flexibility in sizing it.

    Suggestion: Send a picture with your orders - like the one of the two girls wearing the hats and laughing. It would make a good addition as well as advertisement for those receiving the hats as a gift.

    Heads/hats aren't generally measured in diameter. Can you provide either a hat size or circumference that the hats will fit?

  • Chew-Hoong

    @Jerica Etheridge: Around 20 to 22 " circumference. The hats are made with 4 way stretch (poly/nylon/spandex blend) so there is a range of fit.

    I wanted to see more of the Skida line so started searching under

    "Skida Sport" - there were some sites that I tried to click into, but couldn't find one that showed their line. Do you have the web address for Skida where I can view all of their hats? Daily Grommmet only shows a few hats, I would like to view their full line.

    Thank you, Judy Hays

    I am writing to find out if you are considering, in the future, offering some products for summer use. I really like the colors and patterns. I am looking for some products to use for an upcoming 'Relay for Life' event scheduled for next June.

    Do you make these hats for youngsters? I want to get them for my son and his family but I don't see any for my grandsons who are

    7 and 9. The family will spend a lot of time skiing and I want to know they are warm. My teenage granddaughters will love the bright colors.

  • Nan'c

    I would like to help make these hats, any chance you would hire a homemaker (disabled) in San Antonio, Texas?
