Pioneers, adventurers, Verbier obsessives
From small beginnings…
Mountain Air first came to be when Simon Glasgow and Rod Williams joined forces with Peter Pauling to take over a tiny Verbier rental outfit called Jan Sport in 1980. Over time the shop grew. Nick Hammond came into the business in 1989 and was key to the evolution. Expanding into a bigger space, Mountain Air started selling clothing for the first time in 1990 and began to develop its world-famous Bootfitting system into what it is today.
…. to Active Lifestyle Store
In 2013 the shop moved into its current space, expanding from 250 m2 to 2400 m2 of floorspace. Offering a total lifestyle experience from Athleisure through to safety equipment, all under one roof.
While it now occupies a much bigger space than the founders could have imagined, Mountain Air still stands for the same ideals it started with. Our loyal customers coming back year after year because they know we have the expertise to show them what they need.
