Our Story

Glade is an independent ski brand born in Vermont and built in Colorado. In everything we do, we aim to celebrate, support and add to skiing's distinct grassroots culture. We’ve combined the best elements of durability, comfort, and performance from across the industry to establish a new category and point of view on ski gear.
The industry has changed. Nine of the top ten goggle and helmet brands are now owned by a parent corporation. As the industry consolidated the spirit and soul of skiing was lost. We aim to change that.
We won't bombard you with unnecessary marketing, we won't overload you with technical specifications that don't actually matter, and we sure as hell won't make you pay more than you have to. 
If you've got something on your mind, don't hesitate to contact us.
Happy skiing,
Curt Nichols
Founder, Glade
