Snow Peak

HISTORY OF SNOW PEAK

Snow Peak's journey began in 1958, when their founder Yukio Yamai, an accomplished mountaineer, created his own line of superior climbing gear out of the discontent for the current gear on the market. It is their birthplace and their founder's heritage that they look to whenever they sit down at the drawing board and create their next piece of outdoor gear.

From 1980 to the present, Snow Peak has been run by Yamai's son, Toru, Yamai who brought the company to national recognition as a brand who inspires people around the world to enjoy the outdoors and find harmony with nature. Yamai believes that it is Snow Peak's mission to bring people closer to nature; that by spending time out of doors we find our humanity.
