The Snow Shepherd story

Who are Snowshepherd and what do we do?

We setup Snowshepherd in 2009 by Tim Shepherd, to specialise in avalanche rescue equipment and airbags, in 2009 airbags were not mainstream, but a specialised website and advice line worked well for us as a business.

In 2011, my son Brandon Shepherd who now runs the business found the classic lifty glove in the alps while working out there. He got fed up with buying new gloves every winter that didn’t keep him warm nor did they last, after speaking with locals asking where did they get them from, a garden shop in Bourg-Saint-Maurice, they lasted 3 seasons of skiing in them every day, we started selling the classic Venitex French Work gloves as used by locals, ski guides, resort workers and of course all the lift workers in France.

We started with 2 dozen pairs and when they all sold in matter of days, we thought oh! That’s a bit odd and ordered more; We did not think back then we would end up as the only ski retailer in the UK selling these types of gloves and a major manufacturer of leather ski gloves.

With avalanche equipment becoming more mainstream these days. We will still offer advice, however we are moving away from this side of the business to concentrate on Snowshepherd Gloves, based on the original designs of the French gloves but made with proper leather and a proper glove design, the ‘Work’ style refers to the look of the glove, that’s tan yellow with a white cuff, but that’s where the similarity ends, we use high quality same batch leather, waterproof and breathable membranes, and insulation that really works, they are a proper Ski gloves, but also really good for work as well.

So what now? We have a range of Snowshepherd work style gloves, a range of Ski guide gloves, for we added newer ranges of 3 finger gauntlet mitts and softshell guide gloves. We will be adding further styles this coming season, with more gauntlet gloves, and a base level classic glove, with a couple of unique options thrown in, pink leather hello!!!, plus some super warm Antarctic level mittens for extreme cold and low activity.

As with all our gloves, we have them made specially for us in Pakistan, so no importers, no distributors, hence why we can sell at a good price for a very high-quality product. 2022/2023 winter season you will be able to buy Snowshepherd gloves in selected shops across the UK. We will be moving to shops in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand

Our aim to become the best independent Glove manufacturer in the world, making sure the gloves work for you whether it ripping down a mountain, climbing one, or using them for your 9-5 job.
