Born in the French Alps in 1947, Salomon is committed to pushing the boundaries of mountain sports through the creation of innovative equipment that allows people to play, progress and challenge themselves in their chosen outdoor pursuits. Salomon’s purpose of enabling people to play—play to progress, play with the rules, or simply play to enjoy—is the centerpiece of the Time To Play brand initiative. The company prides itself on its ability to equip mountain sports athletes with everything from ‘head to tip’, and to do so in a serious manner, but without taking itself too seriously. The company produces and sells footwear, apparel and equipment for a wide variety of outdoor sports. Products are developed in the company’s Annecy Design Center, where engineers, designers and athletes collaborate to create innovative solutions that continually improve the outdoor experiences of those who see nature as a vast playground.
