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 favorite 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.
 
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.
 

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. That's not what we are looking for.
 
 As part of our team you get;
  • 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.
If you want to be part of our team you need to be recommended by one of the team. As we are currently online only you need to be active on our social media. Follow us, like and share our posts, tag us in yours! #funkyyeti
Thanks.

Plus;
If you can provide proof that you are working as an instructor (with a recent payslip / job offer letter for upcoming season) you can earn commission and extra bonus offers when you refer your clients to us!
 

Do you price match?

At Funky Yeti we would like to be competitive with our prices but as an online only retailer some of our suppliers require us to advertise our products at the full RRP (Recommended Retail Price) so instead we offer rewards points.
For every £100 spent we give you 100 points, 100 points gets you a £10 voucher to spend on other purchases.
 
If you would rather have the discount price offered by one of our competitors we will match it, feel free to contact us via:
 
 
Please include a link to the site you would like us to match. Items must be in stock in the same size and color and the same season model at a UK retailer.
