“I’m fascinated by what I’ll do tomorrow”
If there was another word for ‘mountain’ it would be Salomon. As a brand, they have explored all avenues of mountain sports and perfected the equipment to ensure that we are as safe as possible and have the maximum amount of fun in the outdoors. Starting in 1947 Salomon were making saws and ski edges, becoming famous for their ski bindings. They were propelled into the ski industry spotlight and from there have expanded, broke the rules, progressed and pushed all mountain sports forward to where they are today.
Forwarding to 1997 and there is a boom in snowboarders, Salomon has just released their snowboarding range including boards, boots and bindings and the first-ever winter Olympics game featuring snowboarding is just around the corner. At this point, snowboarding is looked down upon by many but lots of the brands including Salomon and pro riders push on to make snowboarding the industry and sport we love today. Most recently, the Salomon winter team won 18 medals at the 2018 winter Olympics held in Pyeongchang.
