About Funky Yeti

As with so many of the best ideas, our story began as a casual conversation over a beer. After nearly 10 years in the industry, working for some of the UK's largest and oldest snow sports retailers in the UK and travelling to New Zealand to work for one of NZ's top snow sports retailers, Funky Yeti's founder Sean decided it was time to open his own shop and in 2017 Funky Yeti was born.
Sean's main background is in boot fitting. The original plan was to open a shop offering full boot fitting services, but with BREXIT looming we decided to start small.
So in 2017 with a small budget, we built the website ourselves and started with some of our favourite brands and products.
For 2019/20 we are continuing to add more products and brands including Mammut and Airhole Facemasks. In 2019 we started to develop some of our own products, launching a Kickstarter. We have also started working with some brands on products made especially for us like our custom Funky Yeti Gogglesocs and a Nix Snowsport Co ski built to our specs. We also added a new payment method, Zip, which enables you to pay for your purchases in 4 interest free instalments.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a bricks and mortar shop I can walk into and buy?
We don't sell bricks.... or mortar...
We are online only for now.
Our Head Yeti's background is in boot fitting so the plan is to open a proper shop where we will be offering full custom boot fitting services and all of our products available in-store once "Brexit" negotiations have been completed.
We deliver to the whole of the UK and Northern Ireland for FREE on orders over £10.
Why so much green?
First of all I wanted a colour that stands out. I saw a t-shirt that had a bright green logo on and it caught my eye right away.
But green is also a very appropriate colour for the 21st century.
With the effects of global warming becoming more apparent we all need to be greener to ensure we can continue to enjoy the sport we love, on real snow.
We aim to do the best we can to be as green as possible. We use low energy lights, keep the heating down low, recycle all the packaging that or stock is delivered in and make sure we use packaging that is recycle-able when sending to you.
Do You Price Match?
Do you offer instructor discounts?
If you work as a ski or snowboard instructor, then you're having a great time helping more people have more fun... and it also means you probably don't make a lot of money.
Funky Yeti offers some great deals to instructors.

Will you sponsor me?
We are looking for someone who loves their sport as much as we do, and wants to tell everyone about it. Someone who we can hang out with when we're not in the mountains. Someone to represent our brand.
We are looking for a female first, who has public profiles on social media, Facebook + Instagram and if you have a Youtube channel that's an awesome bonus.
We don't care if you are a skier or snowboarder. It doesn't matter if you are into park, freeride, touring or just ripping the piste's. It doesn't matter how good you are, you could be an intermediate piste skier / snowboarder or the head instructor for a ski school, a kid doing their first 180 or an Olympian.

A ski or snowboard setup to use for the season, including up to 2 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards, bindings and boots, Team clothing, Team discount on products, Team perks, including discount gym membership, free mobile phone insurance, and a load of other discounts and offers.
