Everything you need to enjoy the great outdoors
Mountain Air is your summer and winter Base Camp, situated a stone’s throw from the Medran lift at the Place Blanche. They say home is where the heart is - we know what it takes to make the most of Verbier and our goal is to share that experience.
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.
In 2013 the shop moved into its current space, expanding from 250m2 to 2400m2 of floorspace. 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 come back year after year because they know we have the expertise to show them what they need."MOUNTAIN AIR IS MORE THAN JUST A SHOP – TAKE YOUR TIME TO TRY, TEST AND RELAX"
We are skiers, climbers, yogis, trail runners, bikers and mountaineers. We also love après-ski and the odd party. We have created the collections on the shop floors from our own experiences and passion for the mountains and mountain life.
We know what it takes to make the most of Verbier and our goal is to share that experience. Every one of our skis has been chosen specifically for Verbier’s famous terrain. We try to know exactly what you need and if we don’t have it, we’ll help you find it.
We back anyone who chooses to live their life actively and with fun. Because we have chosen to live the same way. It is our mission, above all else, to add value to our customers’ active endeavours by providing the right tools for the job.
