The North Face
From one small store in San Francisco selling rock climbing equipment and backpacks, The North Face has grown into an internationally renowned company, manufacturing technical clothing and equipment for a huge range of sports: mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, trekking, camping… and of course rock climbing!
Their big store in the centre of Chamonix (next to the river) offers a huge range of clothing and equipment for men, women, and children. Explore the three floors of technical equipment (with climbing hardware from Petzl), tents, backpacks, clothing, shoes and accessories.
Ski gear at the North Face is technical and fashionable, from thermal base-layers right through to Gore-Tex outer layers.
The North Face has equipped many expeditions and this experience informs their product development on all levels.
