Act of ValorPolartec has started 2012 with a flurry of activity, sponsoring festivals, running sweepstakes and even appearing on the silver screen.

The brand is sponsoring the 15th annual running of Scufoneda, the biggest European telemark and freeride festival. The seven day event begins on March 4th and takes place in Moena, Italy.

The festival will include off-piste touring with mountain guides, races and activities to bring children into the sport. Polartec has given away a trip to the Scufoneda festival, as well as four Neoshell jackets through their Facebook page. They are now working with Scandinavian outdoor brand, Houdini Sportswear to send a winner to Abisko Freeride Camp in Sweden.

Additionally, in the current film “Act of Valor,” Polartec fabrics are featured throughout including the Level 9 shirt. The piece is constructed with Power Dry fabric for flame resistance and breathability.
