Bidding Info


Flare update: Flare is throwing his straight, attractive conformation and those awesome genetics are shining through! Flare's first son, Flare's Incan Nightfire, is an extremely fine champion grey and now has offspring of his own on the ground.

We have found some of the finest and most revered color genetics in the industry. SNOWMASS XXXTREME FLARE was the premier purchase for the International Alpaca Odyssey auction and we are so excited to get him into our breeding program. Thank you, Don & Julie Skinner of Snowmass Alpacas, for donating him to the IAO in 2010.


SNOWMASS XXXTREME FLARE has the following champion stud line genetics:

Grandsire: SNOWMASS PERUVIAN CASANOVA - Herdsire of the Year and high selling grey male.

Grandsire: SNOWMASS XXXTREME - Futurity Herdsire of the Year 2 years in a row. Highest selling male Futurity 2007.

Sire: SNOWMASS INCAN KING XXX - This is where it gets even more exciting. Snowmass Incan King was Color Champion at Futurity, IAO, and AOBA Nationals. He was slated to become a key stud at Snowmass when renowned British & AOBA judge Nick Harrington Smith took a great interest in him. Incan King is now a leading colored stud in the UK.

AND....Snowmass XXXtreme Flare is one of ONLY 2 sons out of Snowmass Incan King XXX to be born in the US.

3/4 brother: SNOWMASS PORTEUS - leading Futurity Champion stud

Dam: SNOWMASS CASANOVA'S CRESCENDA - Snowmass considers Crescenda to be their "#1 Casanova daughter of all time." She has produced herdsire after herdsire. Her fiber stats have been amazing: 1st year - 14.7 microns, 2nd year - 17.4 microns, 4th year - 20.9 microns, 6th year - 21.3 microns! Incredible for a bay black. She won FIRST PLACE at both AWE and AOBA Fleece Shows.

SNOWMASS XXXTREME FLARE can advance your color fleeces to the finest levels.
