Happy Birthday, Klaus Obermeyer!

Where would we be without the down jacket, high-altitude sunscreen, and some of the first waterproof/breathable fabrics? Luckily, we don't have to think about that, because we've got Klaus. The founder of ski/snowboard outfitter Obermeyer turned 90 this week, reports Skiing magazine, and it doesn't sound like he'll be leaving the slopes any time soon. Alles gute, Klaus!
