Bode Miller Joins SCARPA as Ski Ambassador

SCARPA, a producer of footwear for mountain sports, named Bode Miller, the most successful male American alpine ski racer of all time, to its athlete roster.

Miller joins a range of professional skiers on SCARPA’s athlete team, including Chris Davenport, a longtime SCARPA athlete who also renewed his contract this season.

“My goal has always been to evolve the sport of skiing and the equipment we use,” Miller said. “A partnership with SCARPA is a natural fit with the company’s long-standing track record of developing innovative new ski boots and innovative footwear for all aspects of the mountains.”

Miller has a history with the SCARPA brand. He began wearing SCARPA climbing shoes as a child while climbing with his family and was impressed then by the precision and quality. He has continued to use other SCARPA products in outdoor adventures of various kinds since then.

Miller, who recently relocated to Big Sky, Montama, with his family, has won 33 World Cups, six Olympic medals, five World Championship medals, four golds in World Championships and six World Cup globes.

SCARPA will unveil the Quattro boots at Outdoor Retailer, where it will host a kickoff event the night before the show with Miller, Davenport and other ambassadors. The boots will be available as part of the Fall 2022 line.

“As we prepare to launch our 4-Quattro boot, our first collection of ski boots that are more focused on the alpine-ski world, we wanted to make sure that we built a boot performance-oriented, light and technical enough for the best skiers in the world,” said President of SCARPA Sandro Parisotto. “As we broaden the lens of who SCARPA ski boots are made for, we’re excited for this partnership between the market’s leading ski mountaineering brand and a skier proven as one of the best in the world.”
