Obermeyer Ski Wear
The famous Obermeyer line of ski wear had its humble beginnings in a small Bavarian alpine village in the early 1920’s. There, a very young Klaus Obermeyer first developed a love of the mountains — and ways to quickly descend those slopes. His love of skiing wound up bringing him to America in 1947, where he chose Aspen, Colorado as his ideal home.
How Obermeyer Ski Wear Came to Be
Obermeyer was surrounded by countless others who enjoyed the sport almost as much as he did, and he became fixated on their chief complaints — available outfits weren’t warm enough. They wouldn’t stay dry. They were generally uncomfortable. Obermeyer realized that what these people needed was clothing made just for skiers, allowing them to enjoy the mountains for much longer.
So he set himself upon the task of finding a solution. In the small attic of his Aspen home, he established Sport Obermeyer, a fledgling company devoted to crafting the perfect clothes for avid skiers. He meticulously analyzed every aspect of popular wear to find its shortfalls — what materials worked, and what didn’t? How were they cut? What features were they missing?
His first creation, a parka pieced together from his personal goose down comforter, was a hit with anyone who tried it on. And so he put it into production. From there, he continued to innovate in every way he could discover, expanding his product line while implementing feedback from his avid fans and customers.
Today, Obermeyer is still designing ski wear in Aspen, putting each piece through grueling tests in the Elk Mountain Range to ensure it is absent any flaws. Made with the latest fabric and insulation technology, every piece of ski wear bearing the Obermeyer name is the first choice for thousands who answer the call of snowy mountains.

Obermeyer’s latest line of jackets for men and women are the pinnacle of modern snow wear.
