Located at 577 Main Street in Park City, Utah, the shop will be open during the 10-day Festival, from January 21-31.

Employing more than 1,000 people worldwide, Canada Goose is a recognized leader for its Made in Canada commitment, and a long-time partner of Polar Bears International.

As the must-have gear on film sets for over two decades – both off and on camera – the shop features a wide assortment of Canada Goose’s iconic styles, celebrity and film crew favorites, and the latest products from its Fall/Winter 2015 Collection for men, women, youth, kids and babies. Additional special merchandise available at the shop includes the Canada Goose x Pendleton® Accessories Collaboration which features a down-filled blanket and scarf, fur-lined hooded scarf and wool cap, as well as the Canada Goose PBI (Polar Bears International) Collection, where proceeds from the sale of every parka, jacket or accessory
Firmly rooted in a legacy of luxury, Pendleton’s legendary wool blends with the unparalleled warmth of Canada Goose. Fueled by a pioneering spirit that spans generations, this curated collaboration celebrates shared values of authenticity and a commitment to proudly keeping all manufacturing in the countries we call home. Each piece of this first-ever accessories collaboration features the signature Trail pattern in an exclusive red and blue colourway, inspired by the Canada Goose Arctic Disc.
Guests are invited to discover and draw inspiration from the parkas on display, worn by the company’s “Goose People“: triumphant adventurers who have accomplished incredible feats and made the impossible, possible. As seen in the brand’s recently released short film, directed by Paul Haggis and titled “OUT THERE,” these parkas showcase Canada Goose’s 58-year history of protecting people from working, living and playing in the coldest places on earth.
The film, launching globally on www.canadagoose.com/outthere, tells the stories of some of the brand’s most inspirational “Goose People”: Laurie Skreslet, the first Canadian to summit Mount Everest; Lance Mackey, a four-time Iditarod Champion, two-time ESPY nominee and Hall of Famer; Karl Bushby who is currently seeking to be the first human to traverse the globe completely with unbroken steps; Paddy Doyle, a veteran pilot at First Air, Canada’s airline of the North, and Marilyn Hofman, a medivac flight nurse who had a brush with death while visiting the Canadian Arctic.
Shoppers will also enjoy concierge-level service, including personalized fittings, style advice and free delivery to their home or hotel anywhere in Park City.
Canada Goose is pleased to support filmmakers and for the fourth year has created its official Sundance 2016 jacket – a special-edition Brookvale Jacket exclusively for directors and jury members. New for Fall/Winter 2015, the full Brookvale Collection will also be available in store.
The 1,100 square foot Canada Goose Pop-Up Shop will be open daily from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM MST. Canada Goose products are also available at www.CanadaGoose.com and at Authorized Retailers in more than 50 countries.
