“Triumph Coffee is the perfect venue in town to showcase the new Skevik collection,” says Glenn Anderson, co-owner at Skevik. “Enjoy a cup of coffee surrounded by local manufacturing, local artists and local photography. All skiing related of course.”

The companies have also teamed up to fundraise for Vernon Search and Rescue Society. Starting October 5 through March, customers can add $2 their order for an entry into a ski draw.
