Olympian Simi Hamilton is a product of the Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club, but his Aspen roots run deeper than that: His grandfather, D.R.C. Brown, was the head of Aspen Skiing Company from 1957-79. These days, Hamilton’s found on the global stage, where he most recently cross country skied for the U.S. Olympic team in South Korea. With four World Cup sprint medals, he’s the most decorated member of the men’s cross-country team. Here, he lists his favorite things to wear besides hardware.
L.L.Bean Ultralight 850 Down Jacket
“This puffy does it all. It keeps me warm pre- and post-workout, is as light as bubble wrap and packs down to the size of a baseball (which is especially important considering I live out of a duffel bag for eight months each year).” $199
La Sportiva Helios Trail Running Shoes
“For training, these shoes are light, versatile, have the best tread and offer the ankle support I need.” $125, Bristlecone Sports, 781 E. Valley Road, Basalt
