Obermeyer moved to Aspen, Colorado from Bavaria in 1946 to become a ski instructor at the mountain and it was all over for the ski industry from there. In 1947 Obermeyer started his line of ski apparel after noticing that his students wanted to turn in from skiing early because they felt cold. His first ski parka was made from a down comforter that he had brought with him from Bavaria. In the following years, Obermeyer has been an innovator with ski clothing and ski gear, using his background in engineering to thoughtfully develop products that served skiers’ needs.
Obermeyer ski jackets are high quality and sophisticated in design. They use top of the line waterproofing and fully tape each seam to give you the best guard against moisture and keep you dry on the mountain all day, no matter what the conditions are. Obermeyer women’s ski jackets, men’s ski jackets and kids’ ski jackets keep the chill out and the warmth in while also providing a full range of motion for luxurious comfort you can feel.
