Our Company Culture
Our reason for being began 73 years ago. Klaus Obermeyer founded Sport Obermeyer to make clothing for the outdoors so people would have fun and enjoy those moments of happiness and share those experiences with friends and family. We strive to be the preferred apparel resource for people who seek joy by sharing the skiing experience with friends and family. Obermeyer exists to make skiing easier and more fun. Our intent is to develop products and customer services that make the complicated, easy; the uncomfortable, comfortable; the serious, light-hearted; the expensive, affordable; and the short-lived made to last.
Klaus knows how one’s well-being is dependent upon shared outdoor experiences. Obermeyer is dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles which renew and refresh. He wanted to make clothes which would allow people to have an outdoor experience without getting cold and wet. 'To simply make being outside feel better inside.' Somehow it turned into a business as Klaus began making clothes that were weather worthy. Obermeyer started out 'very very small' and at the time there weren’t many innovative products, so creating industry firsts was easy. His philosophy is simple – help your customers to be comfortable while being outside having fun and smiles will come.
