Crafted gear for everywhere skiing

Central Park Skiers is a growing collection of outdoor products inspired by the dynamic contrast between city life and snowy summits, cutting-edge materials, and hands-on design and crafting practices.

From First Avenue to first tracks
The journey began back in New York City, where I created my first products, sparked by snowy days spent skiing in Central Park with my son. The name Central Park Skiers embodies my passion for skiing – if you can ski here, you can ski anywhere.

Back in my hometown Helsinki, Finland, I design and sew prototypes by myself, aided by the opinions of fellow skiers, mountain enthusiasts, and travelers. When creating critical equipment – like the upcoming Adapt-Alpine 35 skitouring backpack – I don't just rely on the best materials and components, but also conduct field testing to fine-tune features and designs.

So, while the name Central Park Skiers expresses the urban origins of my brand, it's more than that. It's also a lighthearted declaration of purpose: mountain adventures are anything but a 'walk in the park,' yet with Central Park Skiers, my aspiration is to make skiing more enjoyable, creative, and safe for all of you.
