TrueHero had a great opportunity to follow Wigwam Mills, Inc’s Wig-L-Wam Van around Aspen and ESPN’s Winter X-Games this weekend! Check out the pics and videos we posted (more to come so keep watching!) on Wigwam’s Facebook Page!
Wigwam is one of the leading sock companies in the world. They have been around for over 100 years! All Wigwam Socks are MADE IN THE USA! Wigwam supports local yarn spinners and wool suppliers. Wigwam uses the highest quality natural and man-made fibers available! You can feel good about buying and wearing Wigwam Socks!
We met up with Jason and Carolyn in Aspen and after a quick meet and greet we headed to the Wig-L-Wam Wagon and up to Aspen’s Highland’s Ski Area. We met some great people and gave away some socks! Then we headed back in town and asked people to trade their old socks for a pair of new Wigwam’s! Socks (and smells…) were flying! New socks were put on and we were able to take a deep breath again – whew!
After a short night of sleep we met up in Aspen and headed over to the Winter X-Games. The parking lot was full of people who were willing to do a little dance for a new pair of socks! There were smiles all around!
Inside the games we watched Snocross, Adaptive Snocross (where our friend EJ took 4th place!! Nice work EJ!) and Snowboard Slope Style. We were afraid of a mob if we started tossing free socks to the crowd but we did pass out a ton of stickers (and maybe snuck in a few pairs to some desperate attendees!)
We had to do one last hurrah in the town of Aspen before saying good-bye to the Wigwam Wagon, Jason and Carolyn. So…we headed to Red Onion where some other X-Game spectators had gathered! Free Round of Socks (if you gave a little dance!) Then outside by the fire where some girls were complaining of wet feet from their…well, let’s just say “other” socks that are not so smart! Wigwam took care of that!
On the way out-of-town we caught the Wigwam Wagon say “Follow Us! We are heading to Park City, UT” Well….we can’t follow them today but hopefully we meet up again soon!
