At Simond, we're passionate about vertical sports, convinced that their practice elevates both body and spirit. As designers and manufacturers, our mission is to provide head-to-toe equipment for practitioners of all levels, from the gym to the highest peak.

We invite you to discover Simond's base camp at the foot of the Aiguille du Midi and the Bossons glacier. Discover the history of this iconic brand, created over 160 years ago in Chamonix. Explore the landmark innovations that revolutionized mountaineering equipment and equipped legendary expeditions such as the first ascents of Annapurna and Everest.

Take a self-guided tour of the Heritage area, which illustrates this long history through a unique heritage.
