Warehouse Manager

Snow Peak Inc. A corporation of Japan

Snow Peak was started in 1958, when our founder Yamai Yukio, an accomplished mountaineer, created his own line of superior gear out of the disappointment with available products. His innovative, pioneer spirit continues to guide our vision. Today, Snow Peak provides a wide range of high-quality outdoor, apparel and gear to discerning consumers worldwide. Each product we produce is rigorously designed for maximum efficiency and durability. Our luxury camping products bring a new level of quality to outdoor equipment, helping you experience nature at its best.

Snow Peak USA, a branch of Snow Peak Inc. (Japan), is in an exciting young stage in the USA market. In March of 2013 we opened our first US retail space in the heart of Portland’s Pearl District. We offer the largest selection of Snow Peak’s vast catalog of products making it one of a kind in North America. We have carefully curated our outdoor retail space with not only premium Snow Peak products, but also a selection of design focused third party brands that we feel matches the Snow Peak aesthetic.
