Accomplish mountaineer and founder Yukio Yamai began Snow Peak's journey in 1958, when he created a line of hiking gear and apparel for adventuring Japan's rugged Niigata Prefecture. Yamai strove to develop innovative products he could use on long treks in the wilderness, helping him survive and enjoy his time outdoors. Today, Snow Peak’s collection of GigaPower fuel stoves and lanterns are some of the most sought-after in the hiking and camping equipment industry.
