Klaus the Legend

One of the really fun parts of being in business so long (Junior Towne was started by my family in 1956) is meeting some of the people who are legends in the industry. Klaus Obermeyer imigrated to the United States in the mid-40’s, realized the potential that Aspen, Colorado had as a ski capitol and proceeded to do something about it. He and a friend started the first ski school and legend has it that some of his students were cold and he went home and sewed up the first down ski coat from an old quilt that he had brought with him from Austria. The ski outerwear company SportObermeyer was born and countless innovations later has become the leader in top quality, stylish ski and winter apparel. Personally meeting Klaus some years ago and speaking with him on the phone several times, I was struck by his boundless energy and enthusiasm for life. I have never met someone with a more positive attitude. This year Klaus turns 90 and is still going strong. Wow!

SportObermeyer  is one of the best brands we carry in terms of customer service, quality and great colors for kids winter jackets, one piece snowsuits and accessories. Year after year little innovations such as attached hidden mitten clips, I-grow features (let out an extra 1.5 inches in most garments), and sustainable fabrics made from recycled polyester make Obermeyer tough to beat.  Our Obermeyer is in for kids, drop by soon before the termination dust gets any closer.

Happy 90th, Klaus!
