Ever since the first summit of Everest in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, the Sherpa have been renowned in the global climbing and mountaineering community for their hardiness, expertise and experience at high altitude. Sherpa Adventure Gear was founded in 2003 by the nephew of Ang Gyalzen Sherpa (who at 90 years old is the last surviving Sherpa from the original 1953 party) and the clothing is tested by the very people from whom it takes it name as well as boasting Kenton Cool as a brand ambassador – and you don’t get much better than that!

Countryside Ski & Climb is proud and excited to be among the first in the UK to showcase the Sherpa Adventure Gear clothing because it is not only great kit (like the name suggests), but together we are helping to support the Sherpa community as their business grows.
