We're stoked to have you here

Every day, we come to work hoping to do three things.

Make performance-focused, planet-friendly gear that gets people outside, do a little good where we can, and have a laugh along the way. It all ties back to our ultimate vision.


Aussie owned & designed since 1999

Aussie Olympian Pete Forras, Gary “X” Rae, and Bill “the Uncle” Dalton came together, determined to prove that Aussies are a force to be reckoned with in the world of winter sports. 

What began with a focus on rugged ski gloves evolved into a decades-long commitment to affordable, sustainable, top-tier snow and outdoor gear.

Gear that gets you out there, again and again. At peak exhilaration, with total reliability and in perfect comfort, so you can cross the mountain.

A little more about Pete 

Our founder Pete Forras, honed his skills growing up on the Aussie Alps of Mt Buller.

His lifetime spent at the snow led to his competitive ski career highlight, competing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.

After competing, Pete joined forces with Gary and Bill to design the type of products he has needed over a lifetime of mountain adventure.

It's Pete's passion that has shaped the XTM Performance you know and love today.

Planet-friendly Principles

See all the ways we are being cleaner and greener.
