About Us

 
Funky Yeti is a new UK based online Ski and Snowboard shop. Stocking brands such as, Dakine, Dragon, Dynastar, Gogglesoc, K2 Ski & Snowboard, Look, Mammut, Marker, Nitro, Nix Snowsport Co, Point 6, POW, Smith, Thermic, Toko and more coming soon.
 
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 with a small budget, we built the website ourselves and started with some of our favourite brands and products.
 
In 2018 we added more brands, Nix Snowsport, K2 ski and snowboard and Funky Yeti was the first shop in the UK to stock Gogglesoc.
 
For 2019 we are continuing to add more products and brands and we have also started to develop some of our own products, launching a Kickstarter in June 2019. We have also started working with some brands on products made especially for us like our custom Funky Yeti Gogglesoc and a Nix Snowsport Co ski built to our specs.
We also added a new payment method, Zip, which enable you to pay for your purchases in 4 interest free instalments.
 

Here are some frequently asked questions;

 

Do you have a bricks and mortar shop I can walk into and buy?

Not yet. We are currently selling online only.

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.

Where are you based?

We are based in the UK.

Why "Funky Yeti" ?

I had the idea for the Yeti before I came up with the name. I wanted a character for the logo and a Yeti fit the bill for winter.  

Why Funky? Why not!

We wanted something memorable, different and FUN! Skiing and snowboarding is a fun sport!  

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. It's gender neutral. 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 us packaging that is recycle-able when sending to you.
